*Cindy A. Burkett, assistant vice president and branch manager at M&T Bank's Mid-City Plaza office in North Tonawanda, recently presented a $1,500 grant from the M&T Charitable Foundation to the North Tonawanda History Museum.
Museum trustee Robert J. Grosskopf Jr. accepted the grant.
Burkett is a member of the History Museum's Advisory Committee; Grosskopf is manager of the Walgreens location at 1066 Payne Ave., at 19th Avenue, North Tonawanda.
*Olivia Krupski, a junior at Starpoint High School in Pendleton, was named to the National Association for Music Education 2011 All-National Choir. The 330 students selected will perform together in June at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
After receiving a rare perfect score in the state solo competition, Olivia, a soprano, has already received the honor this year of representing Starpoint in the New York State Choir. She was also chosen to represent Starpoint and New York State in the Eastern U.S. Division Choir, which performs in Baltimore late this month.
This is the first time that a Starpoint student has been selected to the Eastern Division Conference.
