At the direction of choral teacher, Elizabeth Fowler, N-C High School joined a new honor society known as the Tri-M Music Honor Society. Tri-M was founded in 1936 as part of the Music Educators National Conference, a national association for music educators. It has since expanded to include 6200 middle and high school programs. This is the initial year for our NCHS Tri-M chapter.
According to Ms. Fowler, “We inducted 35 music students this year, grades 10-12. Membership dues are $25, which helps cover the cost of Tri-M materials, graduation cords, the annual honors recital, and induction ceremonies. I wanted to initiate this chapter at NCHS because I felt it was important to recognize and cultivate the outstanding achievements of our music students. Our chapter helps students develop their music and leadership skills through master classes with college level instructors, an honor’s recital, and various opportunities to raise awareness of the importance of music education through community performances.”
The induction ceremony, held this year at N-C Middle School on Feb. 3rd, is an opportunity to reflect on the immense value of music education, celebrate achievements, and define the higher standards to which our Tri-M students are held accountable. At our initial induction, our students also received an official Tri-M membership certificate and were treated to a formal reception in their honor.
