Wilson Hill Academy Latin students earned 99 medals in the 2018-19 National Classical Etymology Exam, an online test sponsored by the National Junior Classical League. WHA secondary Latin students have participated in this annual exam since 2014, but this year yields a record-setting result, with 51% of participating students earning medals.
“One of the reasons we study Latin is so that we can have a deep understanding of words,” Latin teacher Joanna Hensley explains. “Etymology is a fascinating topic for people who love words, and I am thrilled to see our students growing in their appreciation for etymology. I couldn’t be prouder of our students and our Latin teachers for this high achievement!”
