Jennie Luongo Elected President of American Classical League
We're thrilled to announce that long time St. Andrew's Latin teacher, Jennie Luongo, has been elected as the President of the American Classical League.
The American Classical League (ACL) is the leading organization in the US and Canada for the promotion of teaching and learning of the Classics in elementary, secondary, and higher education. They provide resources, networking, events, scholarships, and much more to support students and educators to help promote and advance the study of classical languages.
This election by her peers is a testament to the hard work and dedication Jennie has put into teaching and growing the study of Latin to St. Andrew's students and beyond. The position is typically held by a Classics professor, often from a top tier college or university, and only extended to secondary teachers held in the highest regard among the Classics community. We are incredibly proud and lucky to be able to call Jennie one of our own, and have no question the excellent work she will do as the leader of the ACL.
When asked about her new position, Jennie had this to say: I'm honored to serve the American Classical League and to have been entrusted with the office by my colleagues from around North America. This organization has nurtured me as a student and a teacher and provides manifold opportunities and scholarships for my own students here at St. Andrew's. I'm lucky to be at a school that values the study of languages generally and of Latin in particular and that supports me in doing this work. My hope is that my work with ACL will enable me to support teachers and students throughout the country and beyond, and I'm beyond grateful to St. Andrew's for supporting me in this endeavor.
Congratulations, Jennie on this well deserved position. We can't wait to see all the good work you will do in this role!
