Area Students among Marshall Maier Award Winners


Winners of the Maier Awards, sponsored annually by the Maier Foundation Inc., and hosted by Marshall University's College of Liberal Arts, were announced recently at a ceremony in the Foundation Hall, home of the Erickson Alumni Center on Marshall's Huntington campus.

Outstanding high school students and Marshall students in both Latin and writing competitions were recognized during an awards ceremony. Brad Rowe, president of the Maier Foundation, was on hand to help present the awards.

The Maier Latin Cup Awards were established in 1979 by William J. Maier Jr., father of former Maier Foundation President Ed Maier, to repay in some way the special attention his high school Latin teacher at Huntington High School showed him.

A high school graduate at the age of 16, Maier received an award then given by West Virginia University which named him the top Latin student in the state. He credited the extra devotion to Latin and Latin students by his teacher as having helped him secure a scholarship to Harvard College.

The Maier Latin Cup Awards celebrate publicly the best high school Latin students in West Virginia. They are administered by Marshall's Department of Classics.

Also, Marshall's Department of Classics sponsors the Maier Latin Scholarship which is underwritten by the Maier Foundation. This $2,000 scholarship is intended to support the work of a student presently pursuing a Latin major at Marshall and who is enrolled in advanced Latin classes.

The William J. Maier Writing Awards were established in 1972 by William J. Maier Jr., in honor of his father. These awards, for excellence in writing, are presented annually to students enrolled in English classes at Marshall.

Here are the winners of this year's Latin and writing awards.
