On Thursday, January 6th 2016, 45 Franklin High School students were inducted into the Spanish National Honor Society.

The Spanish National Honor Society is an honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish III-V, which recognizes high achievement in Spanish courses to promote growing interest in Hispanic studies. To be eligible for membership, students must meet the following criteria:

a)     Students must be actively enrolled in an upper-level Spanish class (Spanish III or higher).

b)     Students must have received all A’s and B’s in Spanish classes from levels one through five or have a 3.6 overall average in Spanish classes from levels one through five.

c)      No student is eligible until the 10th grade (National By-Laws).

d)     Students must never have failed a class due to attendance.

e)     Students must have a good behavior record and not have had recorded incidents of cheating, plagiarism, misconduct, insubordination, or intentional dishonesty.

Each year members must engage in one activity from each of the following three categories:

1) Academic Commitment: current enrollment in a Spanish class, publication in ¡Albricas!, the Sociedad’s national literary publication, and maintenance of an overall GPA of 3.6 or better in Spanish.

2) Franklin High School Community Commitment: 15 hours of community service. At least 10 of the hours must be provided by the SNHS chapter or related to Spanish.

3) Global Commitment: participation in the following: researching and sharing the value of Spanish for a career, volunteering as an interpreter/translator at a nearby hospital or other greater community location, posting news from around the Spanish-speaking world to provide global awareness for the greater school community, participating in an exchange program, and/or seeking opportunities to interact with heritage speakers of Spanish from outside of the U.S.
