MEDWAY — Principal John Murray is pleased to announce that five students have been inducted into the Medway High School Tri-M Music Honor Society.
The eighth annual induction ceremony took place on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at Medway High School.
The new inductees are sophomores Annabella Diamandis, Meray Khela, Alexandra Montana and Emma Reardon, and senior Laci Santos.
During the ceremony, Tri-M Co-Advisers Ashley Nelson-Oneschuk and Amanda Webster spoke about the meaning of Tri-M. The inductees then took the Tri-M pledge and received a Tri-M membership certificate. The evening concluded with a recital featuring the new inductees performing on their primary instrument.
The Tri-M Music Honor Society focuses on creating future leaders in music education and music advocacy, and is part of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), which is the only music honor society for high school students in the country. Tri-M recognizes students who have dedicated much of their time to academics and music, and the organization gives students leadership opportunities and service projects centered around the love and promotion of music in their community.
To be accepted into Tri-M, students must be entering their third consecutive year of a performance ensemble which includes band or chorus, have maintained an A grade average in all music classes and a B grade average in all non-music classes, and have demonstrated leadership in the department and a willingness to be of service to the community.
“Congratulations to the five newest members of the Tri-M Music Honor Society,” Principal Murray said. “Medway’s Tri-M chapter has a great history of promoting success in music and academics, as well as serving our community. I am confident the newest members of the organization will uphold these values well.”
