Here are Linda’s answers to our Spotlight questions:
What is your favorite “math moment”? When I participated in a three month Stock Market Challenge (sponsored by CPCC and the Charlotte Observer). I increased my fake investment of $100,000 to $167,000 and placed 25th out of 7,000 contestants! Too bad it wasn’t real money!
What is your favorite number? My favorite number is a date: 4/11. This is the month and day my husband and I married. Most of the best events in my life occurred on and after this date!
What is a movie that you would watch over and over again? Forrest Gump – this movie has it all: good, bad and ugly. Love, friendship and kindness prevail. There is an overall joy for what Forrest has accomplished in life and for how he has positively impacted so many others.
