The Classical Association of Virginia regrets to announce that one of its Life Members, Dr. Diane Hatch, Professor Emerita of Classics at the University of Mary Washington, passed away on Sat.

She received her B.A. in Latin from Sweet Briar College and her M.A. and Ph.D from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. She co-edited with Dr. Elizabeth Clark The Golden Bough, The Oaken Cross. Above all, she was dedicated to teaching and her students. A tribute to Prof. Hatch will appear in the next CAV Newsletter.Contest and Tournament Information Available

Salvete, amici et amicae,
Members and other friends who were able to attend the associationís spring meeting at the University of Mary
Washington were a lucky group indeed. Outgoing president Mark Keith put together a glorious program, featuring
Susann Lusnia (Tulane University) on reading images of violence in Roman art, Cygnet Steer (Virginia Tech and Radford University) on the Roman calendar, and Angela Pitts (University of Mary Washington) on the sounds of war in the Iliad. I never leave a CAV meeting without ideas dancing in my head for the classroom and for my own appreciation of the ancient world, and this meeting was no exception.
Do you know a colleague who received an award? Have you been honored recently?
When notified, we print a list of CAV members who have earned honors that year in
the classics, such as in teaching, publication, etc. or those who have retired from
