2024 French and Spanish Honor Society Inductees

Ankeny Centennial High School held their induction ceremonies for the National French and Spanish Honor Societies in April. These chapters have been active since 2017. The French and Spanish Honor Societies are national organizations that promote interest in the language and culture and recognize students’ outstanding effort and dedication to the study of the language during high school. French and Spanish Honor Society students must maintain an average GPA of A- or higher for three consecutive semesters in the language and an overall minimum GPA of 3.2. Students organize and lead club activities, volunteer their time to tutor others, and participate in various service projects at school and within the community. Students also demonstrate good character and leadership skills throughout the year. We would like to recognize the outstanding achievements of these individuals this academic school year. La Société Honoraire de français & Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica are sponsored by Madame Lund and Señorita Smith.
