Bethlehem Central High School Spanish teacher Evelyn Ledezma has received the Mario Fierros Award for Excellence from the national Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH). The high school chapter of Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica, also known as Spanish Honor Society, promotes the language and culture of Spanish-speaking countries. Students are admitted based on academic performance and demonstrated interest. Ms. Ledezma is the faculty advisor for SHH at the high school.

The Mario Fierros Award for Excellence is awarded to an SHH chapter sponsor who has given exemplary service to the SHH during the year.  Ledezma will receive a plaque and a travel voucher to attend the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese annual conference, which will take place in July in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

Congratulations to Ms. Ledezma on this exciting honor!
