September 18, 2014 - Students at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board are on the receiving end of a very generous donation from Newcap Radio for the sixth year in a row. Newcap Radio Sudbury Director of Programming, Rick Tompkins stopped by the Sudbury Catholic Board office on September 16, 2014 to present Director of Education, Joanne Bénard with a cheque for over $7,500 from the New Hot 93.5 radio station to help support music programming for students. The cheque is a result of Newcap’s commitment to supporting music programming and education in Sudbury as part of an agreement between Newcap Radio and the CRTC. Through this agreement, the station helps foster youth musicianship in the area. Jody Cameron, Chair of the Board was thrilled with the donation. “On behalf of the students and staff, I thank Newcap for their continuing support of our music programming,” Cameron stated. “It is with this type of additional funding, we can enhance our already outstanding instrumental and vocal programming in both our elementary and secondary schools, and continue to engage students through the arts.”
