latin examFifty-two St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School students were joined by more than 153,000 students from all 50 states and 20 foreign countries in taking the 2015 National Latin Exam. Ten SAS students were recognized for their outstanding achievement on the exam. Katie Giltner received the Gold Summa Cum Laude medal, the second student in SAS history to do so.

Cum Laude: Saje Mangru and Steven Anderson, Latin I; and John Beavers, Latin II.

Magna Cum Laude: Evan Fox, Latin I.

Silver Maxima Cum Laude medalists: Daniel McDonough, Wardie Cammack and Kendale James, Latin I; Sophia Patterson, Latin II; and Carolyn Bruce, Latin III.

Gold Summa Cum Laude medalist: Katie Giltner, Latin I.

Bill Seavey, SAS Latin teacher, was understandably proud of his students. “Even though we do not prepare for this exam as many schools do, our students return consistently high scores. This year our students did exceptionally well, including a record-setting six medalists.”
