students in the French Honor Society

The Hickory Chapter of the Société Honoraire de Français (SHF) was founded in 2019. Membership in this organization, sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF), is the highest honor for students of French in the country. The logo features a capital H in reference to the city of Hickory and to Hickory High School, as well as a fleur-de-lys in reference to the emblem used by the national Société Honoraire de Français.

Each spring, students who have taken or are enrolled in French 2 or above and who have met academic, behavioral, and service standards will be inducted into the Hickory Chapter of the Société Honoraire de Français in recognition of their commitment to French. Our local constitution reflects the national goals of:

  • stimulating interest in the study of French
  • promoting high standards of scholarship
  • rewarding scholastic achievements
  • creating enthusiasm for and an understanding of Francophone cultures
  • promoting international friendship

SHF members and new inductees are required to attend the induction ceremony each spring. Senior members receive their graduation honor cords in the spring of their senior year.
