Johnny Williams and his high energy band made a special guest appearance at St. Charles College recently to raise money for the Empowered Student Partnerships program (ESP). Williams is the recent winner of the Northern Ontario “Battle of the Bands” and when asked by St. Charles College officials if he would play a benefit to support the ESP program he readily agreed. Although the band did not charge a fee, students paid $2 each to hear them play with all proceeds going to the Empowered Student Partnership program. ESP is a new pilot program in partnership with the City of Greater Sudbury Regional Police Force whose mandate is to empower students to be the driving force for safer schools.
