French, Latin students at James Clemens excel in testing

MADISON – In year-end tasks, language students in French and Latin have demonstrated their mastery of a different mode of communication.

“Our World Languages programs are closing out the year on a busy note, with language competitions, tests and other foreign language challenges for students,” Dr. Ed Nichols, Superintendent of Madison City Schools, said.

“Here’s a snapshot of recent activities: a National French Contest by James Clemens students; a Spanish Assembly at Discovery Middle School involving Bob Jones, Discovery, Journey and Liberty middle schools’ Spanish programs; and James Clemens award winners from the National Latin Exam,” Nichols said.

“The following students participated in the National French Contest this year — a test of their French language skills in reading, listening and grammar,” Katie Greene said. Greene teaches French at James Clemens. “Over 40,000 students participated in this contest across the nation.”

James Clemens had 21 students earn awards in their respective divisions this year, including five medalists:

* Level 5 (Advanced Placement) — Erik Wu, National Honorable Mention, highest score in state; and Matthew Williams, National Honorable Mention, second highest score in state.

* Level 4 — Ana Lara, National Silver Medalist, highest score in state; Max Pasho, National Silver Medalist, second highest score in state; Vincent Stewart, National Honorable Mention, seventh highest score in state; Emily Harrison, National Honorable Mention, eighth highest score in state; and Alexandria Alford, National Honorable Mention, ninth highest score in state.

* Level 3 — Urvi Mysore, National Gold Medalist, highest score in state; Disha Patel, National Bronze Medalist, second highest score in state; and Anaya Naphade, National Honorable Mention, third highest score in state.

* Level 2 — Claire Frazier, National Bronze Medalist; Gavin Sharp and Ruby Dauwen, National Honorable Mention; Zemirah Sprayberry, Kinsley Hardy, John Litavec, Ethan Izatt, Ivana Rubio, Emma Titsworth, Isabelle Berrones and Alexis Conner, National Honorable Mention within top 25 scores in the state.

In classes for Latin, 41 James Clemens students took the National Latin Exam this year, Latin teacher Allison Shratter said. Shratter also sponsors Latin Club and Latin Honor Society. Among those 41 students, 29 Latin students at James Clemens won awards and honors.

Several students were judged in different levels:
