Latin award


June 1, 1961 — Last Friday at the Awards Assembly in the Luray High School auditorium, Bill Joyner was presented with a handsome gold medallion engraved with the symbolic wolf and twins of Rome.

He received this award as a winner from Class A Schools in the State of Virginia, as a first year Latin student having the highest grade ever made over the entire state.

Bill attended the State Latin Tournament examination at Madison College last April (on a day when 120 schools and 1,008 contestants from Virginia took competitive examinations). There were 453 competitors in Latin I and Bill Joyner with 96 won first place in the State in Class A.

So high was his score that he brought his three other team mates into second-team position in the state.
