French Honor Society Recognizes New and Old Members
On Wednesday, March 30th, the French Honor Society, FHS, held their induction ceremony. Twelve new students were admitted, twelve second year students were recognized, and three third-year students were honored with pins to commemorate their hard work. The speaker for the commemoration was Louis Mackenzie, PH.D. from the University of Notre Dame, where he is the Associate Professor of French. Ms. Herman, the Mishawaka High School French teacher, is the head of the FHS.
In order to get into the FHS, which is called Societe Honoraire de Francais in French, students must have completed three semesters of French with an average grade of an A- in French and have a B- average in all of their other subjects. They must also write an essay about why French is important and the way it will affect their future. Once a participant, members are required to have accomplished two community service projects and be in French club.
FHS also has executive positions available to qualifying students: the current president is Ben LaDow, the vice president is Haley Zurbach, the treasurer is Peyton Marshall, and the secretary is Emily Heidmann. The next
elections for the club will be held in May.
The French Honor Society will be participating in Mishawaka High School’s Relay for Life event in May.
