Foreign Language Honor Societies Induct 56 Students!

On Monday evening, 56 Wheatley students were inducted into the three national language honor societies: La Société Honoraire de Français, La Società Onoraria Italica and La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica. The purpose of these organizations is to stimulate interest in the study of these languages, to give recognition to scholarship and achievement in these languages and to promote an understanding and appreciation of the cultures and civilizations of the people who speak these languages. In order to be eligible for induction, students are required to maintain an average of at least A- for two consecutive years plus the first semester leading up to the induction ceremony. These initiates have also demonstrated interest in using the language beyond the classroom through their participation in local and national competitions, language clubs or travel experiences.

Stephanie Fink (Class of 2015), who is already a member of the Spanish and French Honor Societies, received special recognition for being inducted into her 3rd language honor society, La Società Onoraria Italiaca.

Current members of the three honor societies who assisted during the induction included: Alexandra Boubour (Class of 2015), Sabrina Lee (Class of 2015), Daniel Singh (Class of 2016) and Andrew Schloss (Class of 2016).
