The Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) is a national honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish and Portuguese and is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. It was formally established in 1953 and at present there are over 2,000 national and international chapters. Here at Peak to Peak, we are the César Chávez Chapter, named after the Mexican American farm worker, labor leader and civil rights activist who was known for his effective community organizing and strong emphasis and promotion of education.
The purpose of the society is to recognize high achievement of high school students in the Spanish language, further develop students' outreach and leadership skills, and to promote a continuing interest in Hispanic studies. All meetings will be conducted exclusively in Spanish and our goal is to share our passion for mastering another language while serving both our school and greater community.
