Descartes medallists

Lenti, Tino

Tino Lenti’s drive for excellence was evident at a young age. He was born in Italy, but moved to Northern Ontario as a young child. Growing up in Sudbury, he received a number of academic awards, including the top student award at his high school, St. Charles College.
At the University of Windsor he was on the Dean’s list of scholars, Athlete of the Year in 1972, and a member of the C.I.A.U. championship basketball team in 1969 with the Windsor Lancers. Tino also attended the University of Western Ontario where he got his B.Ed.
Tino returned to his hometown of Sudbury to teach, first at Lively District Secondary School (department head), then at Lasalle   S. S. (department head) and most recently at Lo-Ellen Park S.S. He has been a school basketball coach for many years, and helped organize the Sudbury Men’s Summer Basketball League.
Tino has also worked tirelessly with the Canadian Mathematics Competition–as a coach for his school teams, as a marker and as a member of both the Descartes and Challenge problems committees.
Mathematics is a hobby as well as a profession for Tino, but he enjoys other hobbies too: fishing, hunting, golf, cryptic crossword puzzles, wine-making and Sudbury’s Italian heritage club, the Caruso Club.
