Westfield High School graduating senior Mark Gillespie achieved a gold medal on the National Latin Exam run by the University of Mary Washington for the past four consecutive years.

The National Latin Exam Committee wrote to WHS Principal Renwick stating, “This noteworthy achievement is, indeed, a credit to your school and to you who support and recognize the value of the study of Latin, as well as to your Latin teacher whose dedication has made this honor possible.  We congratulate you and we share the great pride you must take in this outstanding student.”
