During International Education Week in November, Athens Academy held its fifth-annual foreign language induction ceremony following a presentation by alumni parent Stacey Dolgin Casado. Dr. Casado is a professor of Spanish and head of the Department of Romance Languages at the University of Georgia.
A record 43 Upper School students were inducted into one of three--Latin, French, or Spanish--national language honor societies. This nomination is bestowed upon students who have demonstrated excellence of accomplishment throughout three complete years of study of language at the Honors Level, and who have demonstrated a commitment to furthering their study of language and culture.
