On Monday May 19h, the Hackensack High School World Language Department inducted six new members into the Dante Alighieri Chapter of the Italian Honor Society. The new inductees were introduced and feted for their exceptional accomplishments in Italian and their overall academic excellence at a formal dinner at Dolce Novitá Restaurant in Moonachie, NJ. Initiated in 2011, with the involvement of Hackensack UNICO Past President Ralph Contini, this now 4th annual event sponsored by the Hackensack Chapter of UNICO National has made it a point to continue sponsoring the Italian program and has provided funding for the Advanced Placement Italian program at Hackensack High School. As per the bylaws of the Dante Alighieri Chapter, each member must complete 10 hours of community service within the Italian program and upon completion, they receive their service medal. This year, Mr. Contini received his service medal for having fulfilled his “community service hours” via his ongoing support to the program throughout these past 4 years.
