“‘Poor’ effort in Latin”

From the John F. Kennedy Library, President Kennedy’s eighth grade report card from the Canterbury School in Connecticut:

Kennedy received a 55, and a ‘poor’ mark, in Latin, where his class’ average was almost 85; now I don’t feel too bad about my own Latin grades! Turns out you can be bad at Latin and still become president. And perhaps his high marks in English portend his Pulitzer Prize 27 years later? (Probably not, but it’s fun to speculate).
