The district extends its congratulations to music and theatre students currently studying music at the Usdan Center for the Performing Arts on full tuition scholarships paid for by the district’s partnership with Bethpage Credit Union, Usdan and the PASA Helen Badr Memorial Scholarship Fund. NBHS students Dionte, Leah, Tanya, Kevin and Jacqui are enrolled in studies in band, musical theatre, orchestra and chorus. RMMS students Josef and Loral are studying in the orchestra and Parliament Place student Isabella is also studying music.

“This experience not only enhanced my knowledge of jazz music, it also enhanced the love I have for jazz” says one of the Bethpage Scholarship winners. “We are so proud of our students,” says Director of Art and Music Programs Dr. Kim Lowenborg-Coyne. “They are working hard this summer to finely tune their music skills at a wonderful place to study.  We are grateful to the Bethpage Credit Union and to Dale Lewis, Executive Director of the Usdan Center, for their generous funding and recognition of our students’ potential”
