Schools: art students shine; Tennis Prizes – Huntington Now

56 outstanding student artists from the Cold Spring Harbor School District were inducted into the prestigious National Art Honor Society in a ceremony recently held at the Performing Arts Center at Cold Spring Harbor High School. This is the largest number of students to obtain the honor in the history of the district.

The National Art Honor Society was established by the National Art Education Association in 1978 to recognize student artists in grades 9 to 12 who meet the following criteria: achieve an average of 90% or higher in art classes; obtained one year of credit in art; received two recommendations from teachers; completed eight hours of community service related to the arts; maintained a B average in other subjects; and have not served a suspension from school or a suspension from school.

The Performing Arts Center stage was designed to showcase the students’ artwork, which served as the backdrop for the traditional candle-lighting ceremony. Arts Department Chair Christine Oswald along with art teacher Laura Cirino greeted family members and administrators on behalf of the Arts Department.
