Mansfield ISD Latin students competed and won numerous awards at the Texas State Junior Classical League Area C Latin Competition. The contest was held February 8 at Austin College, in Sherman, Texas.
MISD Latin students won 13 awards at the area event. The students competed in academic and artistic contests to learn more about ancient Greece and Rome and advance to the state level of the competition in April.
Over 40 schools, public and private, competed in the competition and a total of 750 students were in attendance.
“These students did an excellent job and represented MISD wonderfully,” said Melissa Parsinen, Latin teacher and Club/JCL Sponsor. “Thanks for continued support of our Latin students. It has been such a blessing to them and to me!”
The TSJCL state convention is April 11-12, 2014 at Westwood High School in Round Rock, Texas.
