Millbury Savings Bank gives $1,000 to Sutton High School
Supports statewide conference on social justice
Millbury Savings Bank recently donated $1,000 in support of Sutton High School’s “Connections Conference,” a social justice workshop aimed at tackling the issues of bias, privilege, and discrimination in our communities.
According to Ted McCarthy, the school’s principal, more than 500 students and 100 teachers and administrators from around the Commonwealth attended the conference to gain social justice-related ideas and practices they can implement in their own schools. He noted that the conference helps students become more culturally aware and competent as they enter the real world.
“We’re pleased to support Sutton schools as they work to address some of the most serious issues that have become all too common in our society today,” said Robert J. Morton, president and CEO of Millbury Savings Bank. “It’s just one shining example of how our schools are helping to make our communities a better place for all.”
McCarthy said the school plans to make hosting the conference in Sutton an annual event.
