Keller Ryan is a junior at Hickman High School who is in his fourth year of Latin. Ryan said taking Latin has benefited him in other classes by teaching him to think at a higher level.
“It has helped me in English, but I think it has also helped me in history; for example, when we study Rome. The translating of Latin has indirectly helped me learn how to think outside the box,” Ryan said.
Sally Dollar is a sophomore at Rock Bridge High School and has been taking Latin for two years. She decided to take Latin because it wasn’t offered at the high school she would have gone to in Fulton. Dollar said she likes how Latin has furthered her education and her understanding of the ancient world.
“I like being listened to and people listen to me more now because I can use the big words I’ve learned from Latin,” Dollar said.
