May 15, 2019

Seven Christendom College students won top spots in the Classical Association of the Middle West and South’s national Latin translation contest. Amongst hundreds of other competitors, Christendom students represented the school exceptionally well, winning awards in the intermediate and advanced contests, with one student earning the highest award.

Hundreds of students from 32 states competed in the contest, with 30 of them coming from Christendom — one of the most highly represented colleges participating. Students from across Christendom’s four classes competed in and won the competition. Freshman Liam Daigle was awarded a certificate of commendation in the intermediate contest, while freshman Henry Summers won a Book Award for placing in the Top 10% of competitors. Fellow freshman Mary Clare Young won the top prize of the competition — a $250 cash prize for placing in the top 3% in the nation.

From the sophomore class, Mary Grace Bright won a Book Award in the Intermediate Contest, while Mary Clare Kelly was awarded a certificate of commendation in the Advanced Contest. Garrett Boord and Laura Cermak both represented the senior class as winners, getting certificates of commendation in the Advanced Contest.

Christendom students place highly in the Classical Association of the Middle West and South’s national Latin translation contest each year, making the college one of the top classical language colleges in the country.
