Raised by 91 people in 6 months
Thomas L Karolyi, master music teacher, exceptional musician, and unforgettable human being, passed away peacefully on September 8, 2018.  Tom  was the "father" of the Huntington Schools Orchestra program beginning in 1965 and established numerous concerts and music groups at Huntington High School that still continue to this day.  A respected mentor to every music teacher and professional colleague who had the honor of working alongside him, Tom will be remembered for his musical talent, good nature, and his inspirational advice and guidance that brought out the best in everyone. 

To honor his legacy, Tom's family has established the Tom Karolyi Music Scholarship Fund.  A $1000 scholarship will be awarded annually to a deserving Huntington High School Senior who demonstrates excellence in string performance, academic achievement, and leadership qualities.  

Please help us keep Tom's memory alive!  Any and all donations are welcome!
