On October 21st, 2016 nine Cuba-Rushford students were inducted into Société Honoraire de Français (SHF).  This is an organization that was founded in 1949 by the American Association of teachers of French language and culture, to promote scholarship, and reward accomplishments in both and to create enthusiasm for learning about the French speaking world. This Cuba-Rushford chapter of SHF was founded in 2011 by Mrs.Marian Blair. This induction ceremony took place in the CRCS MHS auditorium at two PM following a reception in the library.

The following nine students were inducted: Grace Bichler, Sarah Clark, Gabrielle Dutton, Jason Gabler, Kyle Goodman, Nathaniel Sage, Jousha Tsujimoto, Caitlin Wiltsey, and Sophie Wojciechowski. In order for those students to become a member of SHF, they have to be enrolled in French III or above and have a 90% in the last three semesters of French. They also have to uphold an overall average of 80%. The student must exhibit an interest and enthusiasm in French language and culture including outside of the classroom. They all must be willing ambassadors who will help to further the study of French. The ceremony consisted of an introduction, explanation of SHF in both English and French, explanation of eligibility requirements for SHF, introduction of new inductees, lighting of the Candles and repetition of the commitment to SHF. SHF will help students for future things like college as well. It will show a commitment to advanced learning and help to understand the importance of world languages and cultures in an ever-shrinking world.

The SHF allows students to show their commitment and their ability to learn another language. These nine members have a duty to pass onto future generations about the French language and culture. They are to be ambassadors who will further the study of French while exhibiting and positive and enthusiastic attitude in ad outside the classroom.
