A&S Students Succeed at Latin Translation Contest

By Gail Hairston

Drury Bell took the $100 first place prize in the 51st annual Latin Prose Competition Contest and Katerina S. Banks tied for the third place $50 prize.

The Latin Prose Composition Contest consists of the translation of a passage of English into Latin. The contest is intended for advanced students of Latin who are in their third or fourth year of collegiate studies. It is organized by Eta Sigma Phi, the Honorary Society for Classical Studies.

“These outstanding students are bringing national recognition to our program in Classics, MCLLC, A&S, and to UK. I think that this extraordinary achievement merits great attention,” said Valerio Caldesi Valeri, assistant professor of classics and the Eta Sigma Phi advisor in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures and Cultures (MCLLC) in the UK College of Arts and Sciences.
