Marist High School senior Martha Kowalski won the 2017 Joseph Adams Senior Scholarship from the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH), an honor society for high school students studying Spanish or Portuguese, for her dedication to the study of Spanish and excellent skills in that language.
This national award is a prestigious honor for Marist High School. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to only 60 students from over 2,400 SHH chapters across the United States. Students become eligible by being an inducted member of the SHH and then submitting samples of their written and oral work in Spanish to a selection committee appointed by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
Marist High School has a long history of excellence in academics and has maintained an active chapter of the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica for over the last ten years. Congratulations to student Martha Kowalski and her Spanish teachers, Ms Elana Sitrin and Dr Cory Hahn, who should be very proud of their accomplishments.
Marist offers four-year curricula in Spanish, Italian, and French at four academic levels.
Celebrating more than 50 years of excellence, Marist High School is a Catholic, college-prep, coed institution committed to making Jesus known and loved while preparing students for higher education and life.
