The Mineola School District is proud to announce that Mineola High School senior Hymn Yiu has been named as a 2017-18 Scholar-Artist by the Long Island Arts Alliance.

To be considered as an 11th-grader, Hymn had to have a 90 or better grade point average, excel in artistic abilities, contribute to his school environment and have letters of recommendation. This is the first time the district has had a student earn this designation.

Hymn was one of only 20 chosen from more than 120 submissions. He will receive a $1,000 scholarship and was featured with a spread of his work in Newsday.
