Thirty-six Lincoln-Way East High School students recently were inducted into the Tri-M Music Honor Society.
The students, who had to either audition for the honor or submit a four-page essay to the music department, were selected based on their musicianship, academics, leadership, character and service.
Tri-M, which stands for Modern Music Masters, is an international honor society that recognizes music students for their musical abilities, academic excellence, school involvement and community service.
Students meet on a regular basis and strive to demonstrate the value of music in their lives. They also perform community service work and encourage assistance to others.
Tri-M members are required to complete 10 hours of service each year in music, said Bert Johnson, chair of the Lincoln-Way East music department. They act as ushers for all music department events, work to maintain the music library and equipment, design the hallway display case and post the monthly music calendar.
Inductees included Alyssa Anderson, Claudia Baffo, D’Zhari Bolden, Emily Davis, Kailie Gilmore, Elizabeth Jones, Allie Lundquist, Aly McGann, Molly Noonan, Mark Reczek, Hanna Samawi and Amanda Small.
Other inductees included Leah Andricopulos, Kristen Bainbridge, Kaylee Bortscheller, Chase Fugett, Justin Hedman, Julia Kaffel, Amanda Mascarello, Tim Michuda, Ryan O’Shea, Joel Ruby, Katy Shaw and Katherine Walsh.
Inductees also included Alex Arseneau, Amy Binnendyk, Mikey Cantu, Rebecca Gerske, Tim Hoblin, Heather Lorenca, Carl McCauley, Teresa Mountford, Ali Picciolini, Haley Rymut, Emily Sheetz and Ashley Wright.
