The third induction ceremony of the French honor society known as Société Honoraire de Français (SHF) occurred on April 24 at Marshalltown High School. President Olivia Stone, Vice-President Donovan Gavagan and Secretary Carmen Araiza Solorio each read or conducted parts of the ceremony with MHS Principal Jacque Wyant conferring the certificates and membership cards.

New members that were inducted into the society included Maria Aguilera Torres, Itzy Avalos, Uriel Campos Padilla, America Dominguez Mendoza, Emma McWherter, Taylor Naughton, Andrea Ordaz Jimenez, Liz Vargas Perez, Jose Palmerin Andrade and Rene Hernandez Andrade. Both Melissa Hernandez and Daniela Lagunas will accept their honor at a later date.

Membership requires a high grade point average in all semesters of French as well as a very good overall GPA.  Students can wear honor cords at graduation by staying active and pursuing French 3 or beyond. The group is led by MHS French teacher Naomi Musal, who said she is very proud to have a growing French program at the school.
