Recipient comments about the scholarship:
Emma Vanderpool MC17 says: "I
applied for this scholarship because Matt Katsenes ’04, my high school Latin
teacher, encouraged me to apply and to continue my studies in the Classics into
the college level. I have not regretted that decision. Studying Latin at
Monmouth is such a unique and wonderful opportunity. The small class sizes and
close professor-student relationships truly allow students to grow and develop."
Tim Morris MC15 says:
"The Latin Directed Readings courses that you can take to fulfill the
requirements of the scholarship are so fun that its like getting free money!"
Mark Shoemaker MC'09 says:
"The Latin performance scholarship has given me two things. The first is
that it has introduced me into an interesting class that I enjoy very much,
Latin Directed Readings. The other thing that the Latin Performance Scholarship
has given me is more peace of mind pertaining to my financial aid. Thus the
Latin Performance Scholarship has made my life here at Monmouth College a little
bit more interesting and enjoyable."
