A ribbon cutting was held this morning in NASHVILLE for the newly named CMT ACADEMY OF DIGITAL DESIGN AND COMMUNICATIONS at MCGAVOCK HIGH SCHOOL. METRO NASHVILLE Mayor KARL DEAN, school board representative ANNA SHEPHERD and Dir./Schools DR. JESSE REGISTER joined Principal ROBBIN WALL in recognizing CMT’s commitment to MCGAVOCK HIGH SCHOOL at a ceremony in the school’s broadcast journalism studio.
CMT’s SVP/Strategy and Operations SUZANNE NORMAN was on-hand for the ribbon cutting, as well as LUCIA FOLK, Sr. Dir./Public Affairs and SARAH GAFFNEY, Manager of Public Affairs, who have spearheaded this initiative. Many CMT employees remain at MCGAVOCK TODAY (4/20) as part of VIACOMMUNITY DAY, a company-wide day of giving by all VIACOM entities.
“It is an honor to share our name with the CMT ACADEMY OF DIGITAL DESIGN & COMMUNICATION AT MCGAVOCK HIGH SCHOOL,” said NORMAN. “Our parent company, VIACOM, has a global commitment to education. Our employees have backed VIACOM’s promise by volunteering more than 1700 hours at MCGAVOCK since our partnership began in 2010. We were grateful to be a part of the exciting school reform movement in NASHVILLE.”
“Since CMT began working with MCGAVOCK HIGH SCHOOL, students have benefited from CMT’s internship and opportunities, participation in class projects and in-kind donations,” said REGISTER. “We are especially pleased to honor CMT on VIACOMMUNITY DAY, when 78 CMT employees volunteered at MCGAVOCK by speaking to classes, updating auditorium equipment, painting the broadcast journalism studio and hosting a career fair for Academy students.”
