French Honors 18 Students

French Honors 18 Students

 

On Thursday, April 22, 18 seniors received their graduation cords for membership in The French National Honor Society. Requirements to be a member of the society include having to be in at least the third semester of French, having an A in French, and an overall B average. During their time in the society, students have sold jewelry that women in Mali made from old tires and flip-flops. The money went towards building wells in Mali. Students also participated in a school supply drive for an orphanage in Ghana. Some students also helped with peer tutoring. 

The award for The Outstanding Senior in French was also awarded on Thursday. The award requires an application with various requirements, such as being in at least the third year of French, having an A, being a participant in the French club and National French Honor Society, and having traveled to a francophone country.  

This year’s award recipient is M. Kormann. She has taken French for four years, from her freshman to her senior year, but because she is gifted in the language, she skipped a year, allowing her to reach French 5 after receiving a strong score in AP French. She has been an officer in both clubs and has been a strong supporter of the French program. She participated in a recent French trip, and she intends to continue her study of French in college.
