Sherrard Billings Chair of Classics

The Sherrard Billings Chair of Classics was established in memory of Reverend Sherrard Billings, one of the three original masters at the school. Since 2012, Scott Giampetruzzi has held this chair.

Classics Department Head Scott Giampetruzzi is broadly interested in the history and literature of Greece and Rome and has devoted his attention more recently to the development of distinctively Roman views on philosophical thought in the literature of the late Republic and early Principate. Scott arrived at Groton School in 2003, where he has taught Latin and Greek at all levels, headed a dorm, and coached soccer, baseball, and lacrosse. Scott has a BA from Colby College and an MA from Fordham University.
