Trinity-Byrnes hosts Junior Classical League’s annual Spring Forum
Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School hosted the South Carolina Junior Classical League’s annual Spring Forum. Over 200 Latin students from high schools all around South Carolina, including 43 students from TBCS, attended the Forum.
The Forum included certamen (classics-centered quiz bowl), arts, costume, and project competitions, Latin testing, and Olympika (athletic competitions and chariot races). Many Trinity-Byrnes students finished in the top five places for testing and Olympika, and all TBCS certamen teams finished in the top three.
SCJCL President Carson Munn, a senior at TBCS, planned the Spring Forum with the help of SCJCL State Chair and TBCS Latin teacher Josiane Vero. State 1st Vice President Andrew Saverance and Parliamentarian Matthew Warr, both juniors at TBCS, also contributed to the planning of the Spring Forum.
The SCJCL also holds its elections for next year’s state officers at the Spring Forum. Several TBCS students were elected to state offices for the 2019-2020 school year. Sophomore Trystan Elliot was elected as the state’s 2nd Vice President, freshman Grace Munn was elected to state Parliamentarian, and sophomore Lyndie Reining was elected to state Historian.
TBCS finished second in total points accumulated at the Forum, behind Wando High School of Charleston. TBCS senior Andrew Bernhardt developed a computer program that calculated total scores from the almost 200 events and contests held throughout the day.
