JACKSON, Tenn. – Dec. 13, 2002 – The Community Music Center (CMC) at Union University recently received a grant in the amount of $1,000 from Target Stores. The grant was given in order to give continuing support for music education programs that Union provides. The check was presented by Richard McLeod, manager of the Jackson Target store to CMC director Gina Kinney Scott.
Money from the grant will be used to purchase various supplies for the program. Some of the purchases include musical instruments for the Kindermusik classes, teacher curriculum kits and money that will be set aside to fund promotion and advertising. The money is greatly needed in order to continue the Community Music Center, said Scott.
“The Community Music Center is committed to providing quality music instruction to children and adults in Jackson and West Tennessee,” said Scott, about the importance of the center. “We are honored that Target Stores has chosen to support this endeavor.”
