Sudbury Catholic Receives Newcap Funding to Support Music Programs

Students at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board were visited once again by Rick Tompkins, Director of Programming for Newcap Radio with a cheque in hand. For the fifth year in a row, Tompkins has presented the Sudbury Catholic community 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.

 Catherine McCullough, Director of Education for the Board was on hand to receive the cheque from Tompkins. “What a great relationship we have with Newcap radio,” McCullough stated. “We are always overwhelmed by their generosity year after year, and are so grateful for this additional funding that positively impact our students. This funding allows us to enhance our music programming throughout the board, and we are very thankful to Newcap for their ongoing support and generous commitment to Sudbury Catholic.” Over the past five years, the radio station has donated close to $38,00 to the Sudbury Catholic Board’s music programs.
