On Thursday, February 27, 2020, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. inducted students into the Ruben Diaz, Jr. La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica at The Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice.
The Class of 2020 induction ceremony took place at The Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice, in Melrose, in front of students, faculty and parents, all of whom were extremely proud of these students’ accomplishments.
Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) is an honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish and/or Portuguese, and is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP). With more than 2,000 national and international chapters in their network, Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica recognizes the high school achievements of Spanish and Portuguese students while promoting interest in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian studies. In 2015, The Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice named their chapter in honor of Borough President Diaz.
“These kids are our leaders of tomorrow and I take great pride in inducting these bright and talented student’s into this wonderful honor society,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. “La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica recruits some of the best and brightest in our borough and I remain honored and humbled that The Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice chose to name their organization after me.”
