The French Honor Society, or Société Honoraire De Français, inducted fifteen new members into its ranks on the evening of Tuesday, April 26. Following a Mass celebrated in the Holy Name of Jesus Chapel, a reception was held in St. Ignatius Hall for the newly inducted students and their families.

The newest members of the Société are sophomores Andrew Busenlener, Jackson Butterbaugh, Max Drury, Gabriel Dupuy, and Gabriel Massey; juniors Vincent Baumer, Eric Espinal, Nikhil Gogineni, Nicholas Legier, Ethan Legrand, Peyton Lofton, Juan Menendez, Nicholas Rodriguez-Ema, Jonathan Vegh, and senior Tyrus Norcise.

Membership in the French Honor Society is granted to students who maintain an A or high-B average in French, or demonstrate high proficiency in the language, as well as have a B average in all other subjects. Students meeting the criteria are initially eligible for at least three consecutive quarters. At the time of induction, the candidates must be in a French II class or above. The primary service of the SHF is tutoring Jesuit students in French. Mr. Patrick Benoit is the FHS moderator.
