Lyndon Institute Latin student competing in Texas


LI LATIN STUDENTS COMPETE IN SAN ANTONIO -- Current and rising Lyndon Institute Latin students, along with other members of the Vermont Junior Classical League, worked all summer to prepare for the 2016 National Junior Classical League Convention, which took place at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, July 27 through Aug. 1. During the convention, the students competed against several thousand Latin scholars from around the nation. All students took at least two written tests and most participated in a range of competitions ranging from art contests and Olympic-style events to dramatic interpretations of Latin passages. A select group of Vermonters also competed on the state's Certamen team. Certamen is a brain-bowl style competition with questions that are based on all aspects of the Latin language and the ancient world. Members of the LI Latin Club have been coming on campus up to five times a week to attend study sessions on Latin grammar, Roman history and classical mythology. The group is led by LI Latin teacher, Roy Starling, shown above.
