Rho Kappa
The Social Science Department is also home to the El Dorado chapter of Rho Kappa, the National Social Science Honor Society. Scholar members are selected based on academic qualifications and an eager interest to savor all things social science. They enjoy the camaraderie of fellow social scientists at special club events and earn academic distinction at graduation. Please check out the El Dorado Rho Kappa application for more details about membership.
Members of EDHS Social Science faculty serve as coaches for the seven-time Orange County Champion Mock Trial team (most recently in 2019), the World Affairs Competition team, the Orange County Academic Decathlon team, and for such campus sports as baseball, men's basketball, and men's golf. Four members of our department are also EDHS alumni, four are current or former EDHS parents, and two...Sunshine Cavalluzzi and Jennifer Bremer, are former Orange County Teachers of the Year (there are four total OC Teachers of the Year winners who serve students on campus).
