In October MUS hosted the Latin Veterani Dinner, an annual banquet for advanced Latin students in the Memphis area. A total of 67 students and teachers attended from MUS, Grace-St. Luke’s Episcopal School, Evangelical Christian School, Briarcrest Christian School, St. Mary’s Episcopal School, White Station Middle School, White Station High School, Germantown High School, Houston High School, and Westwood High School. Latin teacher Dawn LaFon of White Station High School was the featured speaker.
“The Latin Veterani Dinner is a wonderful community event,” said Instructor in Latin Ryan Sellers. “It brings both students and teachers from a wide variety of schools together in celebration of the Latin language, and it provides much-needed encouragement and recognition to the students who have matriculated to the AP or IB levels of instruction.”
MUS students attending the Latin dinner included, front row, from left, James Blatchford, Brandan Roachell, Zuhair Somjee, Loyd Templeton; back rows, Philip Wunderlich, Henry Wood, Louis Allen, Jet Tan, Sellers Shy, Kyle Gan, Warren Turner, Chang Yu, Ethan Hurst, Ethan Lam, and Ty Williams.
