Classics Students Bring Home Gold ... and More

Gilman’s classics program continues to prepare students for excellence. More than half of the tri-school students who took the 2018 National Latin and Mythology Exams earned awards. Three of our Greek students won awards in the 2018 National Greek Exam as well.

In the National Greek Exam, Hank Lin won Red (High) in Beginning Greek, Costi Karakousis won  Green (Merit) in Intermediate, and Noah A. Jun won Red (High) in Tragedy.

Thomas Broadus ‘20 won a silver medallion and Thomas Langston ‘20 won a bronze in the National Mythology Exam. In the National Latin Exam, Mekhi Johnson ’18 won a book award for five gold medals, and juniors Jefferson Arthur and Morgan Zinn both won a book award for four gold medals. Noah Jun ‘19 received a perfect paper award in Level IV poetry.
