We congratulate the winners of our annual Herington Prize in Latin and Greek poetry performance for the fall 2012. Undergraduates Heather Swanson and Caitlin Hines respectively impressed the departmental judges with their Latin and Greek readings, and Zack Rider bested his fellow graduate students with a Greek passage of his own choosing.
The Herington Prize was established in 1999 by Maynard and Florence Mack in honor of John Herington. Two undergraduates who perform the best reading of preselected Latin and Greek poems are awarded $200 each. The graduate winner receives a rare book donated by Sara Mack, professor emerita.
