Westlake High School, under the guidance of World Language teacher Anne-Frances Zaborniak Budz, recently established its own Socieded Honoraria Hispanica, an honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish and Portuguese.
Sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese, there are about 2,000 active chapters nationally. The group recognizes high achievement of high school students in the Spanish and Portuguese languages and promotes a continuing interest in Hispanic and Luso Portuguese studies.
WHS inducted eight initial members and will add to the society in the fall. The new members are Hannah Braun, Radu Simion (co-founder and president), Maddie Sandu, Nora Lee, Mia Licciardi, Jamie Screen, Ashwen Ravichandran and Rami Kalash.
“The honor society was founded to commemorate the excellence demonstrated by a select group of students studying the Spanish Language,” said Radu Simion, who co-founded the group with teacher Sra. Zaborniak Budz. “Westlake has a French honor society to honor those students studying French. I felt a Spanish honor society was necessary to honor those students excelling in Spanish.” Radu created the forms and schedules which made the society possible under the endorsement of his teacher.
Membership is open to secondary school students who maintain an honors average in the study of Spanish or Portuguese for a minimum of three years at the high school level.
