Pro-Tel makes $10 K donation to Norwich athletics

NORWICH – More than one of Norwich’s athletic programs have been saved from the chopping block, thanks to the generosity of a local company. Monday night, the Norwich City School Board accepted a $10,000 donation from Professional Teleconcepts (Pro-Tel).



“It is my understanding that these funds will be used to reinstate several athletic programs that have recently been cut by the district due to lack of funding,” said Pro-Tel President and CEO Eric Burrell, in the letter which accompanied the $10,000 check. Burrell, himself a Norwich alum, added that the company was proud to give back to the community in this way.

Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan thanked Pro-Tel for their “tremendous generosity,” calling the $10,000 gift “manna from heaven.”
