More than 100 students were named to the 2023 Shoreham-Wading River High School Scholar-Artist, Musician and Thespian award list.
The students were honored at the May 2 Board of Education meeting. They were introduced by Principal Frank Pugliese and Assistant Principal John Holownia. Collette Grosso, president of WHAM – Wildcats Helping the Arts and Music – addressed the students with accolades for their dedication and drive to their art.
The criteria for the honor were that each student had to maintain a weighted GPA of 90 or higher and contribute significantly to an extracurricular program in the area of art, music and/or theater.
Mr. Pugliese also thanked the teachers for their spirited guidance and encouragement of the students and members of WHAM for their nonstop efforts in advocating for the district’s arts and music program.
