LETTER FROM YOUR

HISTORIAN

IT HAS BEEN A YEAR TO REMEMBER.

TO MY FRIENDS OF MASSJCL, I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER MY MOST SINCERE GRATITUDE FOR ALLOWING ME TO SERVE AS YOUR HISTORIAN THIS YEAR. I HAVE DEEPLY ENJOYED GETTING TO PHOTOGRAPH ALL OF YOUR LOVELY FACES AT EACH OF OUR EVENTS THIS YEAR. THERE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT BEING THE HISTORIAN IN THAT I CAN CATCH A GLIMPSE INTO THE WORLDS OF SO MANY JCLERS. WHILE I ALWAYS ENJOY TAKING A GROUP PHOTO FOR YOU ALL, MY FAVORITE ASPECT OF BEING HISTORIAN ARE THE CANDID MOMENTS I AM ABLE TO CAPTURE. THESE PHOTOS ALL DISPLAY A SENSE OF THE TRUE COMMUNITY, JOY, AND EXCITEMENT THAT COMES WITH BEING A JCLER. I HOPE THAT YOU CAN USE MY PHOTOS, AND NOW ALSO THE SCRAPBOOK, TO REMEMBER ALL OF THE MEMORIES YOU HAVE MADE AT MASSJCL EVENTS. FROM SINGING THE EVER-POPULAR JCL SONG TO MAKING NEW FRIENDS TO LEARNING ABOUT ANCIENT WONDERS, THERE IS SO MUCH OF JCL TO BE REMEMBERED.

With love,

EMMA COHEN MASSJCL HISTORIAN 2018-2019

THE THEME EXPLAINED

Botany and Flora of the Ancient World IN A WORLD OF EVER-GROWING, ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, IT IS EASY TO FORGET ABOUT THE THINGS GIVEN TO US ORGANICALLY BY NATURE. THEY APPEAR IN THE BACKGROUNDS OF OUR FAMILY PHOTOS, ON OUR PLATES AT DINNER, AND IN OUR HOMES ON HOLIDAYS-- PLANT LIFE HAS ALWAYS FOUND A WAY TO INTERTWINE WITH HUMAN LIFE. FOR ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS, PLANT LIFE FOUND ITSELF IN EVERY OUTLET OF EVERYDAY LIVING. FROM AGRICULTURE, TO ART, TO RELIGION, TO HOUSING, PLANTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SEEN AS A GIFT OF NATURE-- ONE THAT HAS SECURED MANY BLESSINGS FOR HUMANITY, FOR THIS YEAR'S SCRAPBOOK, EACH EVENT IS COMPARED TO A PLANT USED BY ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS. LIKE EVERY EVENT HOSTED BY JCL, EACH PLANT HAS ITS OWN UNIQUE QUALITIES THAT ARE TIED TO THE EVENT. THE SCRAPBOOK AS A WHOLE IS SET UP TO MIMIC AN AGED BOTANICAL BOOK, WITH ART INSPIRED BY SCIENTIFIC DRAWINGS.

Divina natura dedit agros, ars humana aedificavit urbes DIVINE NATURE GAVE THE FIELDS, HUMAN ART BUILT THE CITIES

NATIONALS

July 23-28, 2018 Miami University, Oxford, OH NATIONALS IS THE EVENT THAT EVERY JCLER LOOKS FORWARD TO MOST EACH YEAR. WHETHER ITS BECAUSE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAVEL TO A BEAUTIFUL UNIVERSITY, COMPETE IN AS MANY EVENTS AS THEY CAN, OR SIMPLY TO RECONNECT WITH FRIENDS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY, NATIONALS HAS A WAY OF TYING US ALL TOGETHER. THE 2018 NATIONAL CONVENTION WAS HOSTED AT THE BEAUTIFUL MIAMI UNIVERSITY IN OHIO, WHICH BECAME THE PLACE WHERE MANY FRIENDSHIPS BEGAN, MANY CHEERS WERE SHOUTED, AND MANY FIRST-TIME JCLERS BECAME JCLERS FOR LIFE.

EUROPEAN OLIVE Olea europaea

Spread to the Mediterranean around 6,000 years ago, the olive quickly became a universally essential crop to the Roman civilization. The Romans rewarded people with laurel wreaths for military victory and also awarded braided wreaths of olive branches to the citizens who were distinguished. Just as the olive was essential to all areas of the Roman empire, national convention ties together diverse students from all across country through their love for the classics.

SICILIAN FIR Abies nebrodensis As Norther Italy is dominated by th alps, th regions throughout Italy hav vastly different flora. Nativ to Siciliy, th Sicilia Fir is a coniferious tree, meaning that it stays gree year round. Classics Day is MassJCL's winter event, and just as th Sicilia Fir provides color i a difficult season, Classics Day is a spark of classical joy i th middle of th year.

The Nerium is a beautiful pink flower, but beneath its beauty is the sting of toxicity. All parts of this plant are fatally toxic. Certamen, like the Nerium is a mixture of beauty and sting. While the competition is fierce, it is beautiuful to watch play. The Advanced Certamen Team after their first place nationals win
