Rep. Fellela delivers grant to Johnston High School music department


Johnston’s State Rep. Deborah A. Fellela (D - District 43) recently delivered a grant to the Johnston High School Music Department.

“Representative Deborah Fellela came through again!” exclaimed Ronald Lamoureux, long-time director of the Johnson High School national award-winning Music Department. “She has done this before it and it’s a tremendous boost for our students.”

Lamoureux was grateful for the $1,000 legislative grant that Fella secured and presented to the Johnston School Music Association and several students during a brief, yet fun-filled ceremony recently inside JHS.

“Rep. Fella has been helping us for years,” Lamoureux noted. “Because of her efforts we have acquired a host of percussion instruments for use by Johnston High School students. The collection is more extensive than any in the state.”
