The Spanish Honor Society is a prestigious student association that promotes the study of the Spanish language and culture. Indian Creek's Chapter "“El Círculo del Arbol” was established in 2009, and focuses on building community as a key element of the group. The ICS group offers an activity every year during CREEKfest and also holds a fundraiser for a different cause every year, in addition to other community building events. To become or remain a member of the Spanish Honor Society, students must be currently enrolled in a Spanish class or have reached the AP level. They must also keep a GPA of at least 3.5 and 90% in their Spanish class.
On Friday, December 6, 2019, 13 new members were inducted into this esteemed society. SHS officers Melody Kinzer (President), Arija Martin (Vice-president), Ella Fromherz (Secretary), Lena Werner (Treasurer), Olivia Boucher(Historian), Julianna Cerulli (10th grade representative), Leah Corckran (11th grade representative), and Sean Lonergan (12th grade representative) led a ceremony during the all school meeting where the new inductees took the following vow:
“As a member of the Chapter "El Círculo del Árbol" I promise to devote myself to the study of the Spanish language and culture in order to master it. I promise to remember that a language can be a strong tie between people with different identities and backgrounds. As a global citizen, I promise to promote friendship and understanding both within my community and abroad. This is my promise and my oath. “
The society would like to thank teachers, students and their families for encouraging language learning and fostering understanding between people of different cultures.
