World Language Honor Societies Induct 48 Wheatley Students!

Earlier this evening, 48 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 into Wheatley’s chapters, 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.

Over the course of the evening, Caroline Crimmins (Class of 2018) eloquently reflected on her Wheatley Foreign Language Experience, Vani Kumar (Class of 2018) recited “L’automne” by Charles Baudelaire, Eva Suppa recited “La Madre” by Alphonse de Lamartine, Adeel Anwar (Class of 2018) recited “Ritratto della mia bambina” by Umberto Saba,  Cecilia Jozef (Class of 2019) recited “Memoria” by Natalia Ginzburg and Kimberly Esquilín recited “La amistad,” a poem written by her grandfather.
