Showing their appreciation and dedication to the arts, 30 students from Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School were inducted into the Tri-M Music Honor Society or National Art Honor Society. Joined by family, friends, administrators and board of education members, the students pledged their commitment during an induction ceremony held in the school’s cafeteria. 

Copiague School District’s Coordinator of Fine Arts Jennifer Ross-Troise welcomed guests to the ceremony and spoke about the talented musicians and artists who were honored into the respective societies and their dedication to both their school and community.

During the ceremony, honor society advisers shared examples of the high level of talent and community service contributions of their society members. Each society’s executive board members explained the criteria a student must exhibit to be inducted into the society. In unison, they were led in reciting the pledge of the Tri-M Music and National Art honor societies. 

Honorary lifetime membership for the Tri-M Honor Society was given to Copiague Middle School band director Timothy Gavin, inducted based on student nominations. For the National Art Honor Society, Susan E. Wiley Elementary School art teacher Jeanne Daly received lifetime membership.

In the hallway outside the cafeteria, an art show displayed the skill and talent of the many artists in the National Art Honor Society for all guests to enjoy.
