5 Gwinnett students earn perfect scores on National Latin Exam

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Five students at three Gwinnett County high schools earned perfect scores on the 2012 National Latin Exam.

More than 130,000 students nationwide took the test, which assesses students' understanding of Latin.

The five "perfect" Gwinnett students achieved the distinction of Perfect Paper at the levels on which they were tested.

Three of those students attend North Gwinnett High School:

* Ho Lim Lee, 12th grade
Perfect Paper, Level 4 Poetry

* Josh O'Shields, 11th grade
Perfect Paper, Level 3 Poetry

* Angela Park, 10th grade
Perfect Paper, Level 2

The other two students are Sergio Parra, a 10th grader at Mill Creek High School (Perfect Paper, Level 2), and Kevin Kuonqui, an 11th grader at Mountain View High School (Perfect Paper, Level 1).

Additionally, seven more graduating Gwinnett seniors received gold medals for earning scores of summa cum laude on the National Latin Exam during all four years of high school.

Six of those students were taught by Patrick Yaggy at North Gwinnett High School: Emily Benjamin, Seung Jae Choi, Yong-Jei Kwon, Hom Li Lee, Michael Sharp and Stephanie Simpson.

The seventh student, Samuel Gowland, graduated from Parkview High School.
