APM presents bursary for continued education and literacy

Dec 1 2011

CHARLOTTETOWN – APM, in partnership with the PEI Literacy Alliance, has awarded a bursary to Richard W. Cudmore for continuing his education at Holland College. APM donates annually to the PEI Literacy Alliance and takes part in the PGI Golf Tournament for Literacy in June of every year.

This bursary is one of ten awarded annually by the Literacy Alliance. The award is presented to an adult who has struggled with reading and is continuing their education at UPEI or Holland College. Mr. Cudmore is using his bursary to complete his GED, which he hopes to use as a stepping stone to further education.

APM focuses its sponsorship toward empowering those seeking to further their education. According to Business Development Manager Jerry LeBlanc, few things are as important as encouraging literacy and education on PEI.

“Literacy is an issue that touches all Island communities,” said Mr. LeBlanc. “APM is doing its part to create a brighter future for adults and youth who struggle with learning to read.”

Mr. LeBlanc presented the bursary with the Literacy Alliance’s Norm Finlayson. Mr. LeBlanc says that illiteracy is an issue that we must work together to eradicate.

“We have enjoyed our partnership with the Literacy Alliance and we commend them for their important work. We’ve been proud donors over the past few years and we look forward to continuing to work with this group to improve literacy on PEI.”
