Midlo students gather together show their spirit for the Latin convention.

From November 19-20, 2017,  several Midlothian High School Latin students attended the Virginia Junior Classical League Convention, also known as Latin Con. The event took place at the Greater Richmond Convention Center downtown and was attended by nearly 1500 Latin students from all over Virginia. Midlo students participated in a variety of competitions: academic feats of knowledge, artistic displays, forensic performances, political campaigns, and even a spirit chant featuring pirates – Arr! Go Midlo!

Sponsors Amy Petersen and Megan Rebman were proud of their students for trying bold new endeavors, meeting others from different schools, and participating in a variety of activities. A special “gratias” goes out to our fabulous chaperones, Mr. Marsh and Mr. Karst, who made everything go so smoothly.
