Highschool sophomore Shane Stapleton, a standout percussionist in the school’s marching band and symphonic band, has parlayed his talents on a broader scale, participating in snare drum and pipe band competitions as part of the the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association. Stapleton recently earned first place at a series of national competitions, including the 2016 Hudson Valley Celtic Festival and North American Amateur Drumming Championships.

“Deer Park is very proud to be represented in the EUSPBA by this extremely motivated student,” said Bradley Murphy, the district’s curriculum associate for fine and performing arts.
