RIP Drew Boldt

Many of you have probably heard about the young man from Wisconsin who was murdered at Purdue University last week. What you might not know is that he was one of our fellow WJCLers at the State Latin Convention as recently as 2010 (He was from Marquette University High School and served as tech coordinator). Please pray for him and his family. Here are a few links that might be of interest:

Latin Broadcasts From Finnish Radio Station

Hey Guys , 

Here is a link that was passed on to me by one of our illustrious former members. It's to a Finnish radio station that does a weekly broadcast in Latin. The link is for one they did about Pope Ameritus Benidict XVI stepping down. Vale!

This ' n ' that

MVH was a zombie for roll call (with AF as a hippie). He was a pretty big hit (his height didn't hurt). He got a lot of comments while walking around afterwards (and they had really good applause too). One girl said in passing a few hours after roll call, "Oh, you're the zombie! You're famous!"

I was really proud of the kids who all took all or most of the tests. The only one skipped was Greek derivatives by those who couldn't read the Greek alphabet.

Everyone's been busy with impromptu oratory and essay and registering for everything. And even the gluten-free people got good pizza!!!
