GOSHEN — Goshen High School recently honored 37 inductees for the Foreign Language Honor Society. Two students were inducted for their accomplishments in Latin, 13 for French, and 22 for Spanish.
The inductees earned at least 90 percent on the Checkpoint B exam last year and a grade of 92 or higher for levels 2 and 3 combined. They are also required to be in level 4 of the language (French and Spanish) or at least another language in the case of Latin.
During the ceremony, the Pledge of Allegiance was read in seven languages, including English, French, Spanish, Latin, Albanian, Russian, and Bengali. Symbolic candles were lit, each representing a characteristic of the new inductees: scholarship, leadership, character and cultural awareness.
In addition, three inductees, Kevin Alvarez, Kristina Pepaj and Ryan Pinto, each read selections from their application essays.
A reception followed the ceremony.
