Tri-M Music Honor Society
The Tri-M Music Honor Society is the international music honor society for secondary school students that motivates and recognizes musical achievement. Founded in 1952, the Tri-M Music Honor Society has been providing years of service through music by chartering more than 3,000 senior and junior division chapters worldwide.
Jackson High School has maintained a chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society since 1999. In 2005 the chapter was selected as Chapter of the Year for the state of Ohio. The selection of students for membership is based strictly on merit. Ability and scholarship in both music and academic subjects, cooperation with teachers and fellow students, leadership, and service are basic requirements.Sponsor – Michele N.
