Hispanic Honor Society welcomes new adviser

Simmi Singh, Online Reporter

Hispanic Honor Society is an organization that focuses on giving back to the community while learning about the Hispanic culture, from charity work to participating in Relay for Life, to helping those fighting cancer.

This year the club welcomed a new leader, teacher Dawn Anderson. This is Anderson’s first year teaching at Utica High School, and HHS members say they are excited to have her on board.

“Mrs. Anderson makes the class feel comfortable, and allows us to give our opinions,” junior Julia Teper said. “She cooperated with our learning styles, allowing us to review and learn at the same time.”

It was open to students with a minimum 3 semesters in Spanish. Hispanic Honor Society had its first meeting on Friday, Sept. 13 at 7 a.m in room 246. Meetings are every first and third Thursday before school. 

“I’m excited to start Hispanic Honors Society this year,” junior Maryann Hermiz said. “It’s one of my favorite club.”
