On Friday April 7, 2017 David Schenker received the highest honor offered by the Classical Association of the Middle West and South at the 2017 meeting in Kitchener, Ontario. Each year since 1950 the association has awarded ovationes (honorary citations written in Latin and delivered at the CAMWS Annual Meeting) to members for their service to CAMWS and the Classics profession. The Latin texts are subsequently published in The Classical Journal. Click here (works best with Firefox or Safari) to hear the ovatio, performed by James May (St. Olaf College).
