Hunter Student Takes Top National Honor – Again

June 8, 2011 | Hunter College

For the second year in a row, Hunter’s master’s program to prepare Latin teachers for secondary schools has produced the winner of the National Latin Exam Graduate School Scholarship. The first-place finish carries an award of $2,000 for post-graduate study.

The winner is Jessica Kate Anderson, who will complete her master’s next year. She received her B.A. in classical languages and literatures from the University of Maryland and is in her second year of teaching Latin at the Williamsburg Charter High School in Brooklyn. She has won several other scholarships, including two from the American Classical League and one from the New York Classical Club.

Last year’s winner was John Tipton Young, Jr., who is currently teaching Latin at the Browning School in Manhattan and will complete his M.A. this fall.
