Their French instructor, Mr. Kim Icsman, is incredibly proud of their achievement.
“These students overcame so much to earn this recognition,” said SUA French teacher Kim Icsman. “They continued to excel academically through the past year and a half despite learning remotely in the spring of 2020 and a variety of changes to the classroom setting in late 2020 due to COVID-19. The high bar required to achieve this honor did not move as a result of the pandemic and they had to work very hard to achieve it. They deserve this special recognition.”
In order to be inducted into the French Honor Society, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.75 in French during the semester of initiation as well as a 3.00 or better in all other classes during that time. Students must exhibit leadership skills and an interest in French cultural activities. Students must be enrolled in French 4, French 4 Honors or higher during the semester of induction.
