Walt Whitman held their World Language Honor Society (WLHS) induction ceremony on Tuesday evening. Assistant Principal and WLHS Chairperson Ms. Colleen Grady welcomed the audience, highlighting the importance of learning one, two, three, or even four foreign languages. Ms. Grady introduced this year's society officers and the students took command of the evening.  

The evening featured three student performances. Kristen Cummings sang "IL VIVO PER LEI" by Andrea Bocelli. Marina Kopf sang "ABRIENDO PUERTAS" by Gloria Estefan, and Eliza Wong performed a beautiful song on the violin. Officers of the three honor societies; French, Italian, and Spanish called their new inductees to the stage and they signed their pledge. 

Congratulations to the following exceptional World Language teachers who continue to inspire these young students every day: Ms. Bunnell, Ms. Cardillo, Dr. Eikenaar-Klang, Ms. Irizarry, Ms. Stefanelli-Fasano, Mr. Callahan, Ms. D'Addario, Ms. Hindes, and Mr. Rodriquez.
