St. Mary’s Dominican High School students received 2021 and 2020 certificates of membership into Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica, Chapter Las Adelitas. Nine members were inducted this school term and 24 students last year. Spanish teacher Claudia Vallejo is the club moderator. The chapter name, Las Adelitas, was selected by the students in honor of the women who participated in the Mexican Revolution as commanders, soldiers, and nurses. Spanish Honor Society membership requirements include: enrollment in an upper-level Spanish class (Spanish III and Spanish AP); completion of at least three semesters of Spanish (former Spanish III students and Spanish AP students can be eligible as Associate Members); an overall GPA of 85% or higher; a cumulative Spanish average of 3.5 or higher from all previous courses founded. The Spanish Honor Society, founded in 1953 by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese, is for the students at North American secondary schools. The Society’s motto is, “All Together.”
