Mrs Carol Lyon has concluded her term as Chair of the Scottish Mathematical Council. Carol, the first female Chair of the SMC, joined the Council in 2015 and took the Chair in 2019 (not expecting the turbulent years which would follow!). As an experienced primary specialist, with time spent as Education Support Officer and as Schools & Learning Support Officer, Carol brought a fresh perspective to the Council, being the first primary specialist Chair. Overseeing the first online SMC conferences, fostering continued strong SMC involvement with Maths Week Scotland, and becoming the inaugural editor of the Scottish Mathematical Council Primary Journal, we thank Carol for her tremendous service to the Council, and to mathematics education in Scotland. Whilst stepping down as Chair and Council member, we are delighted to report that Carol will remain on the editorial board of the SMC Journals and thank her for her continued service in this regard.
