TWO winners in a National Greek and Latin Translation Contest!

May 14, 2014

Each year the national Classics honor society, Eta Sigma Phi, sponsors the Maurine Dallas Watkins translation contest in Latin and Greek for schools with active chapters. This year, Baylor Classics students had TWO winners: senior Jeff Cross placed 2nd in Advanced Greek and freshman Gabriel Pederson placed 3rd in Intermediate Latin. This is a tremendous accomplishment, since the students entering the contest are among the very best in the country. SIC ’EM, JEFF AND GABRIEL!!!
