Sutton High School Donation

OXFORD, MASSACHUSETTS — bankHometown recently donated $2,500 in support of Sutton High School’s second annual “Connections Conference,” a day-long social justice workshop aimed at tackling the real-world issues of racism, gender inclusion, and social justice in our communities.

More than 600 students and educators from over 40 schools across New England are expected to attend the March 20 conference to gain social justice-related ideas and practices they can implement in their own schools. A variety of small-group workshops help students become more culturally aware and competent as they graduate and enter the real world.

“We’re pleased to support Sutton High School as they work to address some of the most serious issues that face our society,” said Robert J. Morton, president and CEO of bankHometown. “It’s a shining example of how our schools are helping to make our communities a better place for all.”
