This year’s Spanish National Honor Society (SNHS) orchestrated a Christmas surprise for local families in need. Sponsor Ana Reyes and her students recently hosted a canned food drive for families in need of a Christmas meal. During the week of December 15, the students gathered cans and non-perishable goods. 

So why a can food drive? As Ms. Reyes explained, this teaches our students how to give a lending hand to those in need. Also, many people easily take for granted what many consider simple things, like a simple home-cooked meal on Christmas.

This also gives students an opportunity to reflect, be grateful, and give another family a wonderful meal for the holidays.  

Ms. Reyes said, “I believe Christmas is a time for giving and not receiving.” She continued, “Instead of just wanting to get a gift, you can give someone else a smile.”

Though many organizations participate every year in canned food drives, this is the first year SNHS will be involved in this community service activity. Each SNHS member was divided into one of 5 groups organized by SNHS officers.The groups were then involved in a friendly competition to see who collected the most cans. The officers for the 2017-2018 year are Tamaya Dixon, Albita Gonzalez, Vilma Ledferd, Destiny Sakolevidis, and Destiny Vogel. This year’s President is Litzy Guevarra and Sydney Hall serves as Vice-President.

According to Ms. Reyes, the group’s first attempt at collecting cans was successful, with about 100 cans collected and distributed.

The Spanish National Honor Society is an academic honor society focused on Spanish language excellence in secondary and promotes a continuity of interest in Spanish studies. Although, members are not required to speak fluent Spanish, Reyes pointed out. Its motto is “¡Todos a una!” (“All Together for One Goal”). The group was established in 1953 in the U.S.

And while each group has different membership rules and regulations, here at Royse City High School, every society member must take two years of Spanish and maintain a certain number of service hours per year.
