Patrick Serrentino Earns Award of Merit for Music from LI Scholar Artist Program

MILLER PLACE, NEW YORK (September 2020)—The Miller Place School District (MPSD) is proud to recognize and share the accomplishments of an extraordinary student-artist, Patrick Serrentino. Patrick was selected among 20 students on the island, by the Long Island Scholar Artist Program, to receive the Award of Merit for Music.

“On behalf of the Board of Education and central administration, we are thrilled to acknowledge and celebrate Patrick on his hard-earned success,” said Dr. Marianne Cartisano, Superintendent of MPSD. “Patrick is a role model for all of our students and community as he demonstrates passion and dedication in all that he does.”

Each year, the Long Island Scholar Artist program acknowledges distinguished students who perform exceptionally in both academics and in the fields of music, visual arts, dance, theatre or media arts. The program’s fall kick-off event has been postponed to the spring, as a result of the COVID-19 mandated closures, and will now take place at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts in the spring.
