More than 55 New Members Inducted into International Thespian Society and National Music Honor Society
More than 55 new members were inducted into the International Thespian Society (ITS) and National Music Honor Society (Tri-M) during a special ceremony on Tuesday, October 24.
The International Thespian Society honors young actors who excel both in the classroom and on the stage. Claire S. ’24, current ITS president, gave a brief speech and then handed out the ceremonial pins for newly inducted members and certificates for continuing members. The society inducted nine new members and had 17 returning members in attendance.
The National Music Honor Society celebrates outstanding student musicians who have shown themselves to be academically capable and musically gifted. Participating in the music program at NDP helps the student musician develop confidence, creativity, critical thinking, compassion, and a host of other leadership skills sure to serve them well in school and beyond. Each year, the society not only welcomes new members to the chapter, but also recognizes students who have been members for multiple years. Kate W. '24, current Tri-M president, spoke briefly before distributing pins to 47 newly inducted members and certificates to 40 continuing members.
"This induction ceremony is truly an important event that recognizes the positive impact that our outstanding music and theatre programs play in the developing a well-rounded student and preparing them to be successful for when they move on from NDP," said Alex Dzbinski, Performing Arts Department Chair.
