Four students received awards for their scores on the National Latin Exam.

Alexandra Liao ’15 and Howard Deshong ’17 were awarded certificates for their perfect scores on the March exam.

Additionally, Dylan Schifrin ’16 and Deshong won the Maureen O’Donnell Oxford Classical Dictionary Award for receiving four consecutive gold medals on the exam througout their Latin careers.

“I was pretty happy, but honestly I was mostly surprised because there actually were some questions on the test that we’d touched on in class,” Liao said. “I’m glad I did well, but I’d chalk it up more to luck and Mr. Wilairat’s 10th grade grammar drills than anything else.”
