President's Message

Salvete, omnes!

I hope everyone in the classroom has had a calm and gentle end to the academic year! I am sure we can rest comfortable in the notion that we have passed on to our students knowledge, direction, and some affinity for Latin, Greek, and other aspects of the ancient Greco-Roman world. Some of our students have moved on from school and college and will be facing a new world, hopefully strengthened by thoughts inspired by things Greek and Roman.
