Essay of Intent

On a separate sheet of paper, please write what you can contribute to Tri-M.  What are your ideas for the club?  Do you have any suggestions for community service? Essays should not be longer than 225 words.







Members must meet standards each year:


  1. They must have completed at least one year of a Tri-M approved musical ensemble class.
  2. They must be currently enrolled in a Tri-M approved musical ensemble class.
  3. They must exhibit leadership, character, and musicianship.
  4. They must have a 4.0 in their musical ensemble class.
  5. They must maintain no lower than a 3.5 GPA in academic courses.
  6. They must perform on a Tri-M recital during the year.
  7. They must complete 10 hours of community service.
  8. They must audition for an ensemble outside of school, and /or participate in the KMEA adjudicated solo and ensemble contest.
  9. They must make every effort to attend all chapter meetings. 2 missed meetings without approval of the adviser is cause for dismissal.


I understand that if I am selected as a member of the Tri-M Chapter at Highlands High School, I have an obligation to actively participate in all chapter activities, and that I am subject to dismissal if my behavior in any way fails to comply with the chapter criteria. In addition, I will strive to promote a greater awareness of music throughout the school and community. I verify that I meet the member standards established above and that I have truthfully completed this application.
