NES/MAA Preskenis Dinner

A dedicated teacher committed to excellence, a serious scholar, a popular son of South Boston, and a gentleman – Kenneth J. Preskenis died on Thanksgiving Day, 2002. Dr. Preskenis had a passion for mathematics and for sharing that love with others, especially, youngsters. A relentless pursuer of knowledge, he was a regular participant at the weekly seminars in functional analysis at Brown University where he earned his M.S. in 1967 and his Ph.D. in 1971. He joined the faculty at Framingham State University in 1977 after teaching at Newton College and then at Boston College for a total of 14 years. Dr. Preskenis was the author of a number of articles in analysis and mathematics education, a regular attendee and contributor at meetings of the Northeastern Section of the Mathematical Association of America (NES/MAA), a South Boston Athletic Hall of Famer, and a recipient of the Michael E. Glynn South Boston Community Service Award.
