Seniors Sophia Maxstadt and Zoey Ryu (Mi Hung) have joined the Japanese National Honor Society (JNHS). They were nominated by Washington and Lee University based on their outstanding GPA and inducted into the JNHS-College Chapter.
Rhu is a psychology and East Asian Language and Literature (Japanese concentration) double major. Maxstadt is a business administration and East Asian Language and Literature (Japanese concentration) double major.
According to the American Association of Teachers of Japanese, "students can only be nominated to JNHS their senior year in college. They must have maintained a GPA of 3.5 in 5 semester courses in Japanese language and must have an overall GPA of 3.0 at the time of nomination.
"In this increasingly global society, it is important for students to move beyond a monolingual perspective and immerse themselves in understanding the language and culture of another country."
