Musical excellence earned twenty Brockport High School students induction into the Tri-M Music
Honor Society this year.
The Tri-M Music Honor Society is an honor society for secondary school music students that focuses on building leaders and music advocates. The goal of the society is to foster greater interest in musical performance and to provide more opportunities for personal musical expression.
Students are selected for membership in the honor society on the basis of musicianship, scholarship, character, leadership and service to their school and community. The organization’s
high standards serve to challenge students to greater effort and achievement and to encourage
them in the pursuit of excellence.
Twenty students from various music ensembles and classes were recognized during an induction
ceremony at Brockport High School on March 21.
As voted on by the candidates and current members, longtime music teacher Susan Boring was inducted as an honorary member for her dedicated service to the district music department and for upholding the standards and ideals of the Tri-M Music Honor Society.
The Brockport Tri-M Music Honor Society was formed last year under the leadership of music
teachers Kristen Swift and Victoria Valente.
