HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) - The only national honor society for music is now recognizing students in Holmen.
A new chapter of the 'Tri-M Music Honor Society' was created in Holmen to promote musical and community service growth for 9th through 12th grade students. 27 members of the school district's orchestra, band, and choir students were inducted into the chapter for its first year.
The president for the new local chapter says while other honor societies are available, it's important to recognize musical talent as well.
"It's really that whole idea for the outlet of being able to showcase all the talent that we do have in the music program, and having those students that have really good academics and performance skills, being able to highlight their leadership skills too,” said Holmen Chapter of Tri-M Student President Braden Nissen.
The Tri-M Music Honor Society includes more than 75,000 students in all 50 states.
