the William P. Clements
High School chapter of the Spanish National Honor Society!
We are a group of dedicated students interested in the
Spanish language, Spanish culture, and community service.
As S.N.H.S. members, we go to cultural activities, language
competitions, and community
events, as well as social club get-togethers where we sample
Hispanic cuisine and enjoy each others' company. The primary
focus of our society,
however, is on service, directed both toward the Hispanic
community and the community as a whole.
Our Chapter of the Spanish National
Honor Society, Capítulo Cela, named for Camilo José Cela, a famous
Spanish author, was founded in 1990. Our old sponsor is Sr.
a Spanish teacher who sponsored this honor society since 1998.
Sra. Jenkins is taking over as sponsor for 2013-2014 school year.
We currently have about 100 members that will be serving the community. To become a member one must be in Spanish
III Honors or above, be of good character, and meet various grade criteria.
For more on the membership requirements or to print out an application

We have been active in volunteering many hours to the Houston Ifest, George Ranch Texian Days and
Campfire Christmas, the Thanksgiving Parade, and many other services to the community of Fort Bend county and Houston.
The Spanish National Honor Society,
or Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica, is sponsored by the American Association
of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. To find out more about this
