meet our 2022-2023
state and chair board
Salve! I’m Andrew Barth, and I’m a sophomore at Bishop Manogue High School. This is my third year on the state board, and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone doing service. I’ve been in JCL for five amazing years. Outside of JCL, I love to ski, play soccer, and speech and debate. My favorite part of JCL is playing Certamen and meeting new people!

Hi! I’m Benjamin Browder, a sophomore at Sage Ridge School. I am the 2022-2023 Activities Coordinator. I am in Latin Lit and have been doing JCL for 5 years, this being my third on the state board. Outside of JCL, I am a Stage Manager, working at SRS as well as other theatres in Reno as both a tech and SM. Looking forward to an amazing year of JCL!
I have been a teacher of Latin and the Classics for 21 years, the last twelve at Liberty High School. My teaching career began in Virginia, my native state, after receiving a BA in Classical Civilization and Theatre from the College of William and Mary. I also serve as an instructor of Latin and Greek at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and an adjunct Education instructor at Nevada State College. In my spare time, I pursue my other chief passions as a hard rock vocalist and spends quality down time with my wife and three dogs.

I joined The Meadows School - and the JCL - in 2013, having previously held visiting Professorships at Brooklyn College in NYC and Kenyon College in Central Ohio. As a California native, I began my study of the Greek, Latin, and the Classics as an undergraduate at Santa Clara University before completing my PhD at the University of Virginia. In my free time, I enjoy cycling, traveling the world, and spending time with my cat, Minerva.
