Members of the Class of 2019 Patrick Gilfoil, Madeline Turner, Katie Clement, and Jake Sledge competed in the annual contest to recite the prologue to Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. Each year, all members of the class memorize and recite the prologue in the original Middle English, and the top performers from senior English classes compete in chapel. A panel of judges selects the winner based on presentation, pronunciation, and understanding of the language. Congratulations to this year's winner, Madeline Turner!
