Seventeen students were inducted April 29 into the French Honor Society at the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts in Natchitoches.

The chapter is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French, and the local sponsor is David Wood, principal lecturer of French at the school.

Students are eligible for membership after their third semester of French. They must maintain an A average in all French courses and a B average overall.

The aims of the society are to recognize excellence performance in French courses and to promote the French language and culture.

Rachel Sheffield, a junior from Prairieville, was among the inductees.
