Tappan Zee High School’s La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica- Capítulo Tito Puente inducted 33 new members last night during a pre-recorded, virtual ceremony hosted by honor society advisors and Spanish language teachers Odette Santiago and Kristy Walsh.
“We congratulate all of our new inductees to the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica- Capítulo Tito Puente,” Walsh said. “Your efforts and hard work have allowed you entrance into this prestigious, national honor society. May your study of the Spanish language inspire you to continue to build connections with others. ¡Todos a una!”
La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica is the National Honor Society for Spanish language and is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. Students must earn a 90 average in Spanish language coursework and an overall academic average of 85 or higher to be eligible for induction.
“Studying and learning Spanish is a valuable asset in life. It will open many doors for our students, whether those opportunities be the ability to travel and communicate with others or future employment opportunities,” noted Santiago. “All are important and add the intrinsic desire for people to connect with others.”
Felicidades, new inductees!
