EDINBURG – The Edinburg Rotary Club in March recognized the top students from the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District’s Fine Arts Program.

“We are very fortunate to have these students in our Fine Arts Program and it’s nice to see them recognized,” said Economedes High School Head Band Director Tomas Pena. 

The students’ recognition is part of the Edinburg Rotary’s Student of the Month Program, which is held during the community service organization’s luncheon meeting at the Echo Hotel.

“They are not only the top students with regards to our testing, but they also come from diverse backgrounds and they have different challenges in their homes and in their communities,” Pena said. “It’s really great to see them grow up in the fine arts community.”

During the presentation, Rotarians heard from the students, who spoke about their experiences, accomplishments and future. They also watched a special tribute of the song “Rio Grande Valley Home” performed by the Edinburg CISD 5th Grade District Choir.

The Fine Arts Department recently earned the Best Communities for Music Education award for the fifth consecutive year. The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation honored Edinburg CISD with the designation for its outstanding commitment to music education.
