POULSBO — The North Kitsap High School music program received $8,500 Oct. 7.

The money, which is expected to be used for purchasing new music, instruments and instrument repair, was awarded through the Music Matters car license plate fund.

The Washington Music Educators Association awarded the program with $6,500. Another $2,000 in matching funds came from the high school’s budget. The high school had to match the music grant in order for the program to receive it.

Former high school band director Susan Peters and band booster president Randy Borek applied for the grant early in 2013.
