Alessandro Barbiellini ’21 and Max Samulka ’21 have been commended by the Vergilian Society for their performances on the annual Vergil Translation Contest. Only thirty students nationwide received such recognition.
On the exam, Max and Alessandro translated a passage from Book XII of The Aeneid, identified grammar and poetic devices, and composed an essay on the theme of promises and pledges in the poem. Alessandro’s and Max’s performances represented the style of work accomplished well throughout the year in Latin IV Advanced Placement. Congratulations, Max and Alessandro!
