Six talented students from the eighth-grade classes of schools in Hancock, Washington and Penobscot counties were selected for a four-year honorary membership to the Bagaduce Music Lending Library in Blue Hill, according to a news release. School principals and music teachers nominated one student from their eighth-grade class who deserve recognition for his or her musical talent and accomplishment.

Student Membership Awards were presented to Jacob Bamford, Ella Lewis School in Steuben; Noah Gardner, Reeds Brook Middle School in Hampden; Josephine Harper, Highborn Middle School in Howland; Yvonne Rogers, Adams School in Castine; Samuel Viekman, Etna-Dixmont School in Etna; and Ceileigh Weaver, Lamoine Consolidated School in Lamoine.

During their high school years these students will have access to the music library’s extensive collection of over 250,000 individual titles of printed music that they can use as they perform and advance their musical studies.
