The NWLHS is a group that supports the of all World Languages

The National World Language Honors Society is an academic club at CV trying to promote the study of world languages throughout CV and beyond. The NWLHS is run by World Language Department Supervisor Mrs. Christina Stoshack who is helped by other world language teachers such as German teacher Herr Dustin Noll. NWLHS students can further continue their world language studies while also giving back to their community.

Students who have studied a world language for three consecutive years are eligible to join the NWLHS at the start of their fourth year of study. For all years the language was taken, students are required to have had above 93 percent each year. The NWLHS is similar to CV’s National Honors Society in that the student is only eligible if they have no academic dishonesty referrals.

Senior Gina Lukoskie, a member of the NWLHS, said students must “participate in at least 3 community service activities that help promote the language and culture.”

The NWLHS also has benefits to joining. Students receive a certificate of membership at the induction ceremony held for new members which looks great on a student’s resume or college application.

Lukoskie said, “It helps build your leadership skills, it shows a commitment to community service projects, and it allows you to work with others to help promote languages.”

Noll said, “It helps promote world languages in the school and around the community. It shows you are a dedicated student and that world languages played a significant role in your high school career.”

Joining the NWLHS is a good option for any students who have fulfilled the requirements. Joining is also a good choice for any student in a lower level language who may be able to join in the future. The club offers many benefits for those who are eligible and join. Applications to join are available now and must be filled out by October 25th in order to be eligible.
