Students inducted into Franklin High School's French Honor Society
Twenty-five Franklin High School students were recently inducted into the FHS chapter of the French National Honor Society. The Société Honoraire de Français is an organization run by the AATF (American Association of Teachers of French.) The FHS chapter was formed during the last school year; this was the second group inducted.

Membership requirements are completion of two full years of French with a grade of A- or better; a minimum 3.0 GPA in all other coursework (excluding French grades); and completion of at least one full semester at FHS (transfer students). Membership is by invitation only.
Holly Crosley, chapter advisor, said the group is in its second year, and is continuing to expand its fundraisers and activities including possibly starting a tutoring service for underclassmen struggling with learning French. One recent activity was treating the FHS staff to croque monsieurs (a baked or fried boiled ham and cheese sandwich) in honor of French Week.
She noted that fundraising will provide monies for a scholarship or scholarships for those traveling abroad, and that a $1000 scholarship (provided by a donor) will be available for a senior. 
Students inducted were Taylor Cherrington, Dylan Crandall, Grant Crase, Maya Crutchfield, Gavin Gorsuch, Kierra Harris, Brooke Jordan, Brooklyn Kinzer, Emma Lou Madden, Adam Osborn, Haylee Owens, Nathaniel Paarlberg, Brooke Pearson, Isabella Powell, Maggie Lynn Richards, Ilyssa Roberts, Landon Robinson, Jordan Rogers, Cheyenne Rose, Reilly Ruppert, Alex Russell, Ashley Stamper, Charles Webber, Josie Whaley, and Colton Wolf. 
They joined fourteen students who had been inducted last year: Garvin Adams, Hayley Canter, Kristin Earles, Madison Earles, Dominic Emmett, Molly Eyink, Jessica Gollahan, Ashely Hall, Samantha Hopper, Kennedy Jones, Madison McGuire, Madison Powell, Brooke Stover, and Ashley Townsend.
Club officers are President Madison Powell, Vice President Dominic Emmett, and Secretary Ashley Townsend.
