NHS student earns LIAA Award of Merit

The Long Island Arts Alliance has honored North High School senior Zi Jun Guo with an Award of Merit for excellence in academics and the arts.

Guo is one of 20 students to receive this distinction and was recognized during a ceremony held at Half Hollow Hills High School East in September.

LIAA will formally congratulate her with a certificate at their annual Gala at the Tilles Center this spring.

Awards of Merit are presented as part of the LIAA’s Scholar-Artist Awards program, which recognizes students judged to be “the best of the best” on Long Island in both academics and in the arts, according to LIAA’s website.
