The Amityville Memorial High School held its annual National World Language Honor Society Induction Ceremony to recognize and honor students who have excelled in the study of their chosen world language. To be inducted into the society, students must maintain an average of 85 percent or higher in their foreign language classes.

During the event, new inductees participated in a candlelighting ceremony and recited the NWLHS oath. The society, along with NWLHS adviser and ceremony coordinator Elias Castro, welcomed 26 new inductees, while simultaneously biding farewell and honoring four graduating seniors. To signify their membership, each new inductee received a certificate and a medal.

The well-attended event also featured presentations by guest speakers Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mary T. Kelly, Amityville Memorial High School Principal Dr. Clinton Grant and English as a Second Language District and Foreign Language Coordinator Susanne Peña. Additionally, members of the El Teatro Rodante Hispanico, a non-profit organization that promotes and celebrates foreign cultures through dance, performed various dance styles including the flamenco and bachata for attendees to enjoy.
