Westfield to recognize Spanish National Honor Society students

La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica, as the organization is called in Spanish, is similar to the National Honor Society. Only students in their third and fourth years of Spanish are eligible to become members. 

To earn membership, students must prove to be responsible and keep a solid Spanish GPA. Students in Spanish 3 must have a Spanish GPA of at least 3.5 and those in Spanish 4 must have at least a 3.2. 

In the past, students in this organization have collected school supplies that were delivered to an impoverished school in Belize and written Spanish essays, poems, and stories that have been published in a Spanish language magazine called Albricias.
