Shady Side Academy recent graduate Giri Viswanathan '20 is one of 16 recipients nationally of the 2020 National Latin Exam (NLE) Scholarship, worth $2,000.
The National Latin Exam awards the scholarships annually to qualifying high school seniors who won gold medals on the intermediate to advanced NLE during their senior year. Viswanathan has received a gold medal every year since he was in seventh grade, and earned his final gold medal this spring on the Latin V exam as a senior. Applicants must agree to take at least one course per semester of Latin or classical Greek in their first year of college. Learn more at www.nle.org/Scholarships.
