BergslienGlendora High School Pageantry Director, Linda Bergslien, recently earned the Robert Greenwell Award for Parade Adjudication from the Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association.

The SCSBOA, which represents over 1,200 music educators, bestows this honor on one of its distinguished members each year for their excellence in parade adjudication.

Bergslien happens to be the first female recipient of the award, as well as the first non-band director to earn this distinction. She is an alumnus of Glendora High School and the Tartan Band and Pageantry.

Under the guidance of Bergslien and director Scott Schwarz, the Tartan Band and Pageantry are continually ranked one of the top bands in Southern California.  She has compiled a long list of impressive achievements, having led these groups to hundreds of awards and honors over the years. Her exemplary tenure at Glendora High has been highlighted by four appearances in the Rose Parade.
