Generous Donation is Music to Sudbury Catholic’s Ears
Students at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board are on the receiving end of a wonderful gift from Newcap Radio once again. For the fourth year in a row, Director of Programming, Rick Tompkins paid a visit to the Sudbury Catholic Board office to present Nicole Snow, Superintendent of School Effectiveness with a cheque for over $7500 to put towards music programming for the board. The cheque is a result Newcap’s commitment to supporting music programs and education in Sudbury as part of an agreement between Newcap Radio and the CRTC. Through this agreement, the radio station promised to help foster musicianship among area youth, particularly through providing support of local school board music programming – including the purchase of instruments. Nicole Snow was thrilled to be accepting this donation on behalf of the board. “We are absolutely thrilled to have such a great relationship with Newcap Radio,” Snow stated. “Their generosity year after year has had such a positive impact on our students as it has allowed us to enhance our music programming at the board. We are very grateful to Newcap for their ongoing support and generous commitment to Sudbury Catholic.” Over the past four years, the radio station has donated close to $30,00 to the Sudbury Catholic Board’s music programs.
