CANTON - Corning Canton Plant Manager Joseph W. Neubert presented North Country Public Radio Station Manager Ellen Rocco with a $6,000 check May 18.
The funds represent Corning Incorporated Foundation's annual grant in support of North Country Public Radio's local and national news coverage and Readers & Writers on the Air literature series. NCPR has been the grateful recipient of Corning support since 1982.
"The Corning Incorporated Foundation has invested in and encouraged the work of North Country Public Radio for many years," said Rocco. "That support has played a tangible role in the station's development of an award-winning regional news service and on-going cultural programming. We are deeply grateful for this generosity to the station and the people who live in the North Country."
