Victoria for Bolles Latin Students at Forum
students in toga

Bolles welcomed nine First Coast schools to the Upper School San Jose Campus February 2 for the 54th annual Region 3 Latin Forum. The event was a Bolles family affair with dozens of Bolles parents, faculty and alumni volunteering to help, proctor and judge at the annual competition.

Students of Bolles Latin faculty Ginny Greenland, Meredith Kendall and Jeff Yeakel excelled in more than 40 academic, artistic and athletic events on campus – each spotlighting the Latin language and the classical civilizations of Greece and Rome.

Participating students represented a wide range of Latin study levels, from Grade 7 Latin IA to Latin V Honors. For many of the competing students, their awards reflect hard work and improvement from last year’s event.

Under the leadership of Latin Club and Region 3 Consul Noah Silverstein ’19, the board of student officers, which includes Sadie Craddock ’21 and Rishi Misra ’20, completed several projects to complement the event’s success. Misra went on to stand successfully for 2019-20 Regional 3 Proconsul, or vice president.

With a bittersweet thank you, the teachers recognized Noah’s parents Michael and Sandy Silverstein, for completing more than a decade of service as head parent coordinators.  This was their last Forum and their hard work, pride and concern for others exemplifies The Bolles Way, leaving the organization even better than they found it when their oldest son Matthew Silverstein09 was competing.

Additional highlights included: a service project that provided hand-decorated bookmarks for local senior facilities and a radio-controlled chariot race. Bolles middle school students maintained their supremacy this year, beating out five other teams to keep the traveling trophy at Bartram. For additional photos, visit our online gallery.
