The Monmouth College classic department recently named the two recipients of its 2011 Latin Performance Scholarship.

Timothy Morris is a 2011 graduate of Southern Baptist Educational Center in Southaven, Miss., where he studied Latin under Jenny Wrigley, Julie Zammit and Joann Haughton. He plans to study both Latin and ancient Greek at Monmouth.

Emmery Schuytema is a 2011 graduate of Monmouth-Roseville High School, where she studied Latin under Brian Tibbets. She plans to continue studying Latin at Monmouth, with the goal of becoming a high school Latin teacher.

The Latin Performance Scholarship is designed for both majors and non-majors in Latin and offers up to $2,000 annually. Applicants for the scholarship are expected to demonstrate competence in comprehending and translating Latin with the aid of a dictionary and are asked to prepare a short passage in Latin prose or poetry to discuss with faculty and students at an on-campus audition.

Recipients are not required to major or minor in Latin to maintain their award, but are expected to successfully complete at least one course in Latin per semester. The scholarship is renewable for four years.
