The TSJCL Torch Fall 2017 - 2

From Your President... Salvete TSJCLers! I hope that you have had a successful start to the new school year. For those of you that attended the NJCL convention, allow me to thank you for representing TSJCL at spirit, in Certamen, in Ludi, and throughout the entire week in such an amazing manner. I hope that I will see you and your friends at next year’s NJCL convention. I cannot wait for the TSJCL convention this year at Naaman Forest High School in April. Your board and I recently met at our Fall Board Meeting to prepare for the Area conventions and make exciting revisions to the State convention. I would like to share this year’s convention theme: Non progredi est regredi, “To not go forward is to go backward.” This idea spoke out to me as a representation of how our study of the ancient civilizations has not only given us a greater understanding of history, but it has also pushed our knowledge of the world we live in today to make us more intelligent than we were yesterday. With the State convention in mind, I also want to announce the new spirit competition. Spirit will not require any extra preparation on your part besides bringing your TSJCL love to convention. Isabella and I are also incorporating a service project into the State convention. In our effort to help out our host community, we want to aid those less fortunate in the Garland area. Details over spirit and the service project will come in the near future, so stay on the lookout by following the TSJCL Instagram @ texas.jcl and checking the new website by Helen He at www.tsjcl.org. In addition to the events, a couple of new contests will join Ludi; more information will come through the Membership Packet. For now, I invite you to reach out to the JCL community and explore the classics in ways that you have never done before. I hope that your passion for the TSJCL will remind you that non progredi est regredi. I wish you the best of luck in all of your pursuits.

Hunter Liu TSJCL President From Your Editor... Salve! My name is Spencer Allan, and I am honored to be serving as your Editor for this school year. As I put together this issue of the Torch, I tried to represent the true scope of the TSJCL. From the hundreds of national awards down to even the board meetings, it truly is an incredible organization matched by few others. But because the TSJCL is so diverse and spans so many different parts of Texas, I would love to hear what you or your school Latin club has been up to. Write to me at editor@tsjcl.org for a chance to be featured in the next issue! I hope you enjoy this issue of the Torch as much as I enjoyed making it.

Spencer Allan TSJCL Editor

TSJCL, Alive and Well!

S

chool had just gotten back into session, but the new TSJCL board was already hard at work. On September 16th, students and teacher sponsors from all different parts of Texas gathered at Westlake High School in Austin to discuss the next school year. This marked the second meeting to be presided over by Hunter Liu, this year’s President, who had previously met with both the old 2016-2017 board and new 2017-2018 board last Spring. The Fall Meeting has traditionally been geared towards preparing for the Area and State conventions, which includes establishing locations, approving the yearly budget, and modifying contest rules. One of the most exciting ideas to come out the meeting was proposed by 1st Vice President Isabella Zhou. She, along with the other officers, will be spearheading a charity program at the State Convention which will allow TSJCL members to engage with charities across the Dallas metroplex, which currently suffers from one of the highest poverty rates in America. Other tweaks included the restructuring and addition of Ludi categories, which includes a new Spirit competition. The first TSJCL conventions may seem far off, but the board is already hard at work making them the best yet.

Making History

H

istorian Emma Buechler was tasked with taking photos of the TSJCL in action during the 2017 NJCL convention last summer. “This was my first year at Nationals and it went beyond any expectations I had,” she said. “I was thrown into the middle of it as state historian, but I quickly got the hang of when and where I should take photos, and ended up with a thousand by the end of the week.” Some of the photos she took at Nationals are featured here, depicting various events around the National convention. Emma has a few favorites. “I loved fellowship and general assemblies, although the dark theater the fellowship took place in was a bit of a challenge to photograph at first,” she said. The fast pace of Nationals required her to change her techniques over the week. “By the end of the week I had gone from taking examples of the activity done more than just the amount of people doing it. I really enjoyed photographing everyone at Nationals and I can’t wait for State!”
