We are proud to induct nine students into the newly recognized BASIS Independent McLean chapter of the Société Honoraire de Français (SHF), the French Honor Society. The inaugural SHF members joined six new members of our Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica, the Spanish Honor Society, in a joint in-person, socially distanced induction ceremony on Friday, January 22. 

The SHF provides an opportunity to recognize outstanding scholarship in the study of French, and is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. The mission of the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) is to recognize high school achievement in Spanish and Portuguese and to promote interest in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian studies, and is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
