The Lake Forest professor has had a long history with mathematical olympiads. In recent years, Treviño has assisted a number of teams, attending the 2017, 2018 and 2019 European Girls Math Olympiads. He has also been involved in training the Canadian and Mexican teams in the summers of 2017 and 2019 for the International Math Olympiad.

In other news, Treviño was honored by Lathisms, an organization honoring Hispanic mathematicians during Hispanic Heritage Month. He was recognized on September 19 for his many academic achievements as well as participating in mathematical olympics as both a student and later as a coach.
