Spanish Honor Society charts direction

In the past, Spanish Honor Society has felt barely involved with the school, but this year things will be different, according to President Christy Hernandez.

“Last year, we weren’t able to do much as a society, in fact, I don’t think we got to do anything at all,” the senior said. “So I really plan on stepping up as president and showing the rest of the school that we exist.”

Club Secretary Natalia Marmol has a theory as to why the society didn’t do much last year.

“We had so few members that it was difficult to get things done,” she said. “Many people didn’t even know that our school had a Spanish Honor Society club.”

Vice President Saul Torres said he wants people to realize that Hispanic culture is an important part of the community.

“This year I expect the honor society to hold more fund-raisers and be much more involved in school activities,” he said.

New sponsor Awilda Marti said the organization’s success rests in its members’ hands.

“I don’t want them to feel that it’s my club,” she said. “I don’t want them thinking that it’s what I say and that’s it. I will like the members to feel involved with the school.”
