56 outstanding student-artists in the Cold Spring Harbor School District were inducted into the prestigious National Art Honor Society during a ceremony held recently in the Performing Arts Center at Cold Spring Harbor High School. That is the highest number of students to achieve the honor in the district’s history.
The National Art Honor Society was established by the National Art Education Association in 1978 to distinguish those student-artists in grades 9-12 who meet the following criteria: achieve a 90% average or higher in art classes; earned one year of credit in art; received two teacher recommendations; completed eight hours of arts-related community service; maintained a B average in other subject areas; and have not served in-school suspension or out-of-school suspension.
The stage in the Performing Arts Center was designed to showcase the students’ artwork, which served as the background for the traditional candlelighting ceremony. Art Department Chair Christine Oswald, along with art teacher Laura Cirino, welcomed family members and administrators on behalf of the art department.
