Hometown: Hendersonville, North CarolinaBefore he came to Samford, Ethan pursued a Classical homeschool education in his southern Appalachian hometown. He has loved Classics and languages for as long as he can remember, and is an avid student of Spanish, Latin, and everything Greco-Roman. During high school, he performed in multiple Shakespeare productions and took second place at the UMD National History Day contest. Not content to improve his mind at the expense of his body, Ethan has competed in gymnastics and run cross-country. Praestantia in omnia Christo.
