FLAIR Honor Society induction ceremony at ASU
Augusta, GA – Learning a second language at an early age has a positive effect on intellectual growth, according to studies. It also leaves students with more flexibility in thinking, greater sensitivity to language, and a better ear for listening, among other improvements.
To honor outstanding area high school foreign language students, the Foreign Language Association for International Rapport (FLAIR), Augusta State University’s foreign language academic alliance, will induct them into the FLAIR Foreign Language Honor Society. The ceremony will be held on Monday, March 5, at 7 p.m. in ASU’s Maxwell Theatre.
Students who have maintained an A average for at least three semesters and who are recommended by their foreign language teacher are eligible. Students with an A average for five semesters will also receive a medal and for seven and/or nine semesters, a pin.
A Student of the Year from each area high school will be awarded, and one student will be named the FLAIR Student of the Year. A Teacher of the Year Award will also be presented.
For more information, contact Jana Sandarg, advisor of FLAIR and professor of Spanish in ASU’s Department of English and Foreign Languages, at 706-737-1500.
