Atascocita High School Latin club wins big at National convention


Six Atascocita High School Latin club students competed against 2,000 Latin and Greek students from 32 states across the nation at the 65th National Jr. Classical League Convention. The high school students dedicated time this summer to study Latin and curate classically themed art projects to enter in various competitions during the annual convention, held at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. All six students took home several awards and are now national award winners. 

Leonard Randolph, Atascocita High School junior, earned a distinguished medal and is now ranked 5th in the nation for National Jr. Classical League Graphic Arts.  
National Jr. Classical League encourages student interest and an appreciation of the language, literature, and culture of ancient Greece and Rome. In addition to the competition, the convention provides leadership opportunities for state officers. Faith Padgett, Atascocita High School senior, has been chosen to serve as the 2018-2019 Historian for the Texas State Jr. Classical League and on the student board of State Jr. Classical League Officers for Texas.
