Gilman has 77 reasons to be proud of its Latin program this spring. That's how many boys and girls earned awards on the 2017 National Latin exam. Three Gilman boys wrote perfect exams, receiving a certificate in addition to their gold medal. Only 6% of test takers achieved that distinction. And two boys received a special award for receiving their fourth gold medal. Congratulations to Justin Bai '20, Tom Broadus '20 and Mekhi Johnson '18 on their perfect papers and to Mekhi and Andy Eller '17 on winning their fourth medal. Well done gentlemen! You demonstrate that knowledge is monumentum aere perennius.
Third graders Sam N. and Charlie H. wanted to celebrate their birthdays with a joint party with friends, but felt that they had "enough stuff." The boys asked their friends to bring gifts for the students in the Bridges program at Gilman. Bridges features a five-week summer institute as well as year-round academic and social support for students from eight Title I Baltimore City schools. The "stuff" given to friends of Sam and Charlie included playground equipment, books and clothing. Recently the boys presented their party gifts to the Upper School volunteers for the program, who will share them with Bridges students.
