Blue Ridge High Latin Team Takes 2nd Place
Thirteen Latin Students from Blue Ridge High School, accompanied by their Latin teacher Jim Westcot, parent Mark Johnson, and Furman University classics professor Randall Childree, competed at the annual Spring Forum of the South Carolina Junior Classical League. The group brought back the second place trophy for overall sweepstakes points, outclassing a number of delegations larger than itself. Students competed in several areas of competition, including written tests, graphic arts, costumes, oratory and dramatic interpretation, certamen (academic team), and olympika.
