These awards were given to the top 12 to16 school mathematics teachers in the State of Illinois. She was also a supervising teacher for student teachers from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Although Barbara would never win a popularity contest among students, the real measure of her contribution to education, and to the effectiveness of her teaching methods, was the success of her students in advanced placement exams and college mathematics. Her greatest satisfaction came from hear of her students' success in college mathematics. Her extracurricular activities in the high school was as coach and sponsor for the Scholar Bowl team and faculty adviser for the wrestling cheerleaders. Barbara retired from teaching in 1990 and enrolled in the fall 1990 class of masters program in landscape architecture at North Carolina State University in Raleigh N. C.

James Thompson at the at-large representative to the inaugural board of trustees of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy located in Aurora and served in that role for three years. Barbara was an avid reader, enjoyed travel, gardening, home remodeling and family genealogy. Her favorite interest was gourmet cooking. She opened her not only to friends, but also to many rotary group study exchange teams. Her compassion was expressed in the support she gave in helping host families care for young children from Belize, who came to this country for orthopedic surgery under the Rotary Belize Crippled Children's Project.
