Dr. Robert Pampin of Sparta attended the March 5 board meeting of The Sparta Education Foundation (SEF) where he donated an electric bass guitar to the Isak Anderson Recording Studio at Sparta High School. After a patient of Dr. Pampin’s gave him the five-string Ibanez electric bass guitar, he restored it for use by the high school students.
