from Jane Webb (LSU), head of the high school scholarship committee:

The winner of the LCA High School Scholarship this year is Chris Cochran of Baton Rouge Magnet High School, a student of Yuri Weydling. He has studied Latin since his middle school years and has taken Latin II, III-H, IV-AP, and V-AP at BRMHS under Yuri’s direction. He is presently the editor of the LJCL Newsletter and tutors other students in Latin at BRMHS. His present ambition is to major in Classical Studies. His teacher feels that he is both a natural scholar and a well-rounded young leader who will one day be a Classics professor. The LCA is proud to support this young scholar and we wish him well in his future endeavors.

from Nathalie Roy (Episcopal, BR), head of the college scholarship committee:

The LCA Committee for the Robert J. Edgeworth Scholarship for College Classics Student is pleased to announce that James Hamilton is this year’s recipient of the scholarship. James is a current student of Dr. Wilfred Major at LSU. In the words of Dr. Major, “James is a wonderful representative of education in the Classics in Louisiana. With a year of high school Latin, he entered McNeese University and under the tutelage of Scott Goins developed a consuming passion for all things Classics. He is currently at LSU, where he is a top student in Latin, Greek and courses in translation, as well as a leader in Classics-related activities on campus. He is aiming to go on to graduate school, working on comedy and pedagogy.” Congratulations to James, Willie, and the fine classics program at LSU!
