Nashville leaders put the spotlight on CMT recently in a ribbon cutting for the newly named CMT Academy of Digital Design and Communications at McGavock High School. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, school board representative Anna Shepherd, and Director of 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 Senior Vice President of Strategy and Operations, Suzanne Norman, was on-hand for the ribbon cutting, as well as Lucia Folk, Senior Director of Public Affairs and Sarah Gaffney, Manager of Public Affairs, who have spearheaded this initiative. Many CMT employees remained at McGavock as part of Viacommunity Day, a company-wide day of giving by all Viacom entities. CMT has made a significant investment of time, talent and in-kind donations to the Academy including providing tours and job shadowing opportunities for Academy students.
