Thirty-four Winona Senior High students were inducted into the Tertulia Chapter of the Sociedad Honoraria Hispanica (Spanish Honor Society) part of the AATSP (American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese) during a ceremony held at the high school by advisor Susan Larsen.
The purpose of the Spanish Honor Society is to promote the Spanish language and culture. Honor Society members have taught Spanish in Winona elementary schools, provided Spanish tutoring at the high school, raised money for clean water, free-trade bracelets and have created events and displays at the high school to promote the Spanish language. The main purpose is to promote friendship and understanding through the Spanish Language in the Winona community.
To be inducted into the Spanish Honor Society, Winona Senior High students must be enrolled in the 4th level of Spanish or higher, they must have an A-average in all Spanish classes and have an overall B- average at the high school.
This is the eighth year for the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica at Winona Senior High School.
