Students travel for National Classical League Convention

Three Latin students from Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School and one from White Knoll High School in Lexington, SC traveled to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio to attend the 2018 National Junior Classical League Convention July 23-28.

Students representing Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School were Carson Munn, South Carolina Junior Classical League President; Andrew Saverance, SCJCL 1st Vice-President; and Ben Naso, SCJCL Webmaster. Attending from White Knoll High School was Senior Kyle Pelletier.

While at the convention, these young men will compete in a variety of contests including academic, creative arts, graphic arts, Olympika (track, basketball, volleyball, etc.), and the Certamen. The Certamen is a game of fast facts related to classical civilizations and its peoples, languages, and cultures.

“Attending the convention also allows the students to rekindle old friendships and build new ones,” said Josiane Vero, TBCS Latin teacher.
Trinity-Byrnes offers Latin classes from Latin 1 to Latin 5AP in addition to courses in Spanish and French.

Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School is a coeducational, non-discriminatory, college-preparatory day school serving students in grades seven through twelve located in Darlington.

Trinity-Byrnes fosters development of every student’s intellect and character through strong academics, a wide variety of athletics and extra-curricular activities. For more information contact April Munn, Director of Admissions and Communications, at (843) 395-9124, amunn@trinitybyrnes.org
