Van Buren Band Director Brad Reeves was inducted into the Phi Beta Mu International Band Directors Fraternity during the Arkansas Bandmasters Association clinic on Friday.

Phi Beta Mu was established in 1936 to honor outstanding band directors. In order to be chosen for induction, a band director must have a history of superior bands, a leader in the field of music education, considered an outstanding educator by his or her peers and receive a unanimous ‘yes’ vote by membership.
