Latin Students Earn Recognition at New York Classical Club

Congratulations to Latin students Elisa '25 and Daniel ‘25 for their recent achievements!

Elisa won first place in the New York Classical Club's Recitation Competition. There were over 30 competitors this year. Elisa's flawless rendering of a passage from Vergil's Aeneid dazzled both the judges and the competitors. She will be honored at the upcoming NYCC's spring lecture where she will perform the winning recitation. This is the second year that Elisa has earned an award at this competition.

You may read more about Elisa in a profile published earlier this year.

We also want to acknowledge the other members of the talented recitation team. The judges were genuinely impressed by all of the student performances.
