French National Honor Society
The French National Honor Society (or La Société Honoraire de Français) is an organization whose intent is to recognize high school students in the United States who have maintained excellent grades in at least two years of French language courses; this is done by induction into the organization.
At induction, the FNHS history is usually read, culminating with the lighting of candles. Each student holds a candle, and the student next to him or her recites the motto, L'homme qui sait deux langues en vaut deux, which means The man who knows two languages is worth two men. All the members are considered inducted when all the candles are lit.
Community service is mandatory for the organization, as well as a high grade point average overall, in addition to an A-average in French classes.
