The DeKalb High School chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society inducted 20 new members on October 1, 2020, for a total of 37 members in 2020-21. 

The DHS Tri-M Music Honor Society has at least two major service projects each year, in addition to their community performance outreach. They did a paper drive for the Barb Food Mart on November 18, 2020. A pick-up full of supplies was delivered in December.

Currently, the DHS Tri-M Chapter is working on a new mentorship program with music students at Clinton Rosette Middle School and Huntley Middle School. They are also putting together a compilation video of holiday music to send out to the area nursing homes that they usually visit in person yearly.

The donated paper products from the annual DHS Tri-M Paper Drive will benefit local families at Barb Food Mart.
Mrs. Sheila Felder, orchestra director, shows the donations received for the annual DHS Tri-M Paper Drive, which was held as a drive-thru event this year due to the pandemic. “It was so successful as a drive-thru event,” says Mrs. Felder. “The students plan on doing it this way in the future.”
