    Capítulo Luisa Valenzuela
     
     
     
     
     In 2003 the first members of Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica established the Luisa Valenzuela chapter at Middlesex County Academy. As part of the charter requirements the members chose an honorable figure in Hispanic history to  adopt as a chapter name. Hence, the members chose the Argentine author, Luisa Valenzuela, and subsequently,  contacted Ms. Valenzuela, requesting permission to adopt her name as a chapter of the society.

    The Spanish Honor Society recognizes the highest achievers who have committed to at least 3 years of Spanish studies at the Academy, and will continue studies in the Hispanic language in the future. Induction takes place annually in the spring. Once selected and inducted, SHS members must partake in a community service project.
