• Welcome to the Daphne High School

    Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica


    Sponsor - Jim Tate

    The Sociedad Honoraria Hisánica (SHH) is an honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish. It is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP).

    The SHH was formally organized as the Spanish National Honor Society in 1953. The name was changed to Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica in 1959. At present there are over 2,900 national and international chapters of the SHH.

    The mission of the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica is to recognize high school achievement in Spanish and to promote interest in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian studies.

    All accredited secondary schools are eligible to charter a chapter.

    Chapter sponsors must be active members of the AATSP.


    The Jorge Icaza Chapter was organized at Daphne High School in the Spring of 2020, but due to the pandemic, no members were inducted last school year.  Twenty- one new, charter members will be inducted this Fall.
