Shannon Michaels Areford In 2012 a student of USC Sumter did undergraduate research in mathematics 2011-2012. Shannon solve and published and open problem propose The Fibonacci Quarterly. In 2012 she won the award from South Carolina Senior Academy for her presentation based on here research. This accolade is substantial because she was in her second semester of her first year of undergraduate studies with only elementary college math as a background. She is also an avid equestrian and enjoys triathlon sports.

Robinson Alexander Higuita Diaz In 2015 was a master student at Universidad de Antioquia. He has been doing undergraduate and graduate research since 2010. He already published three papers and more 20 solutions to proposed problems in journals like “The Fibonacci Quarterly”. Robinson is also passionate about Number Theory, Jordan Algebras and Real Analysis. He is currently working on applications of Jordan Algebras.
