APM presents bursary for
continued education and literacy
– APM, in partnership with the PEI Literacy Alliance, has awarded a
bursary to Richard W. Cudmore for continuing his education at Holland
College. APM donates annually to the PEI Literacy Alliance and takes
part in the PGI Golf Tournament for Literacy in June of every year.

Alliance and we commend them for their important work. We’ve been proud
donors over the past few years and we look forward to continuing to work
with this group to improve literacy on PEI.”
