Lauren Bezek

Bachelor of Arts, Mathematics and Secondary Education

School of Education

Hometown: Kingston, Pa.

Activities and Achievements: Bezek was a counselor at both the Women Empowered by Science summer camp and the SHINE day camp at Wilkes. Bezek also served as the Kirby Scholar in STEM education at the University’s Allan P. Kirby Center for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship. Bezek researched Fibonacci and Lucas Number applications with matrices and Diophantine Equations with Vee Ming Lew, associate professor of math and computer science. She was a tutor for the math department and also tutored middle and high school students.

Noteworthy: Bezek was chosen to complete a week-long field experience in education in Arizona.

Favorite part of the Wilkes experience: “The highlight of my time at Wilkes has to be the relationships I have built with my professors and the opportunities these relationships have granted me….I know I would not have had many of the opportunities I am so thankful for without my professors and Wilkes University.”

Future Plans: Bezek plans to pursue a master’s degree in either mathematics or STEM education.
