What Is TRI-M?
TRI-M is a high school music honor society, and is run by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). TRI-M has over 5,000 chapters in the world, and is recognized as a program that helps the community and allows for student leadership.
It is also the only honor society for high school musicians in the country, and allows for high school students to participate and plan music related service projects and volunteer activities.
At TRHS, we have a point system that we base our lettering on (like NHS has). Each meeting is worth 5 points, and an hour is worth 10 points. Different service projects will allow you to get more points, which will allow you to remain in good standing with the chapter.
If you are a senior and interested in getting a cord, the amount of points needed to cord is around 200 points (the total number of points from all of our activities is around 400 points). If at the end of the semester you feel like you deserve a cord but do not have enough points, see an officer to discuss options (if you have been in TRI-M for three years and have gone to most events, you will be getting a cord).
