DPI: The Greendale High School Marching Band recently received the 2017 Sudler Shield International Marching Band Award. They are one of only two high schools to receive the international award for the small school division. Tom Reifenberg is the director of bands, with Liz Parsons as co-director.

Reifenberg, Parsons, and their students received the award May, 14 during a ceremony with W. Dale Warren, professor of music in the University of Arkansas Department of Music, and Sudler Shield Chairperson. They were recognized for their exemplary teaching, and helping students master complex musical and technical skills.

The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding marching bands that perform at a world-class level. The award focuses on international standards of excellence for musical performance, choreography, and show design for various types of marching bands. The small high school category was recently created to honor the excellent teaching in schools or programs with fewer than 1,099 students.
