The Latin on the certificate is translated below.


AT MEMORIA BENE REDDITAE VITAE SEMPITERNA QUOD ENIM MUNUS REIPUBLICAE AFFERRE MAJUS,
MELIUSVE POSSUMUS, QUAM SI DOCEMUS ATQUE ERUDIMUS JUVENTUTEM.


But the memory of a life laid down well is eternal and for what greater, or more preferable,
gift are we able to bring to the state than if we teach and educate the youth.
