A Gubernatorial Goodbye
Former North Gubernator Emma Davis
Soles occidere et redire possunt. Known for his sappiness and
thousands and hundreds of kisses delivered to his dear Lesbia, who
could have predicted that Catullus could so perfectly summarize my
feelings on leaving the JCL? I have spent my entire high school
career within this phenomenal organization, and it pains me to
leave it. Yet I know that as my term for North Gubernator comes to
a close, the next Guber will be rising to the occasion. Still, I would
like to offer my (debatably) sage advice before my own sun sets on
the JCL, and rises on the SCL.
Firstly, try everything! Before you know it, your time with the
Junior Classical League will also be at an end, and you don’t want to
have any regrets. Watch certamen, attend colloquia, enjoy ludi, and
make lasting memories. I know I have and I would not have it any
other way! Secondly, consider running for office; the executive
board is a multi-faceted organization that is more fun than can
possibly be described. If you are a motivated individual who is
passionate about leadership and the classics, please consider
running. We could certainly use you!
This brings me to my final articulation; my personal sun rising
again on the world of the Classics. I am thankful to say that I don’t
have to say goodbye to all of you, merely a see you later. I will be
joining you once more as 2019-2020 Editor of the Senior Classical
League. Slashers, the SCL is a wonderful opportunity for you to
allow your own sun to rise again.
Gratias tibi ago JCL!
