The Italian Honor Society (Società Onoraria Italica) is a national organization whose goals are to recognize students who have achieved excellence in the study of Italian, as well as to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of the Italian culture.
The McClancy Chapter of the Italian Honor Society is named in honor of Mother Cabrini.
Mother Cabrini came to America to be of service to the vast numbers of Italian who emigrated here. She attended to their physical and spiritual needs. She founded schools, hospitals, orphanages, not only in the United States but also in Central and South America. Her trust in the Sacred Heart of Jesus enabled her to accomplish so much. By the time of her death, she founded 69 institutions.
