President's Message

Salvete, amici et amicae,

              As I write this, I can see from my window the unmistakable signs of springóbuds on the bushes and trees in my back yard, and the fresh green of new grass and daffodils. New growth is what the Classical Association of Virginia is about these days. On Saturday March 9th , the CAV is offering a teachersí workshop on Greek and
Roman mythology at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, the harbinger, we hope, of more such workshops. (If you could not make it to this one, never fearóLori Kissell will be including highlights from it in her presentation at the CAV Spring Meeting.)


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 teaching.  So throughout the year, please send us information concerning your honors as you receive them to the newsletter editor, Rachel Caudill,

Do you have a program, event or product that would be of interest to classics teachers in Virginia?

If you would like something posted on the CAV website, please submit it to the website editor, Charlaine D. Lunsford.  Please send any additions, corrections or announcements to  Make sure "CAV" is in the subject.
