Posted on 09/22/2022

Hicksville High School student Brandon Baade was recently named a Scholar-Artist as part of the Long Island Arts Alliance program in conjunction with Newsday.  Baade was one of only 40 high school seniors named top on Long Island in the areas of music, theater, dance, visual and media arts. The Hicksville senior was selected in the music category for this year’s class of 2023 Scholar-Artist recognition.

Student Scholar-Artist profiles will be featured in Newsday throughout the month of May 2023.  Additionally, there will be an awards ceremony later in the spring to celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s class of Scholar-Artists.

The Long Island Arts Alliance developed the Scholar-Artist Awards program to present outstanding high school-age artists to the public in monthly profiles that will appear in Newsday and on Newsday.com. Selections are made from a pool of students nominated by Long Island’s public-school districts, and from independent and parochial schools.
