The Marietta High School Athletic Booster Club has one goal - to enhance the experience our athletes have while participating in our sports programs beyond what the school budgets can provide. We do this by providing financial support for all of these programs.
In addition to financial support, the Booster Club recognizes that participation in high school athletics benefits everyone, and the Booster Club promotes opportunities to build and strengthen relationships among everyone involved through the enthusiastic participation of volunteer officers, directors, parents, school faculty and staff, sponsors, and community members.
During the past few years, the Booster Club has made significant contributions to our programs making our athletic programs more enjoyable and safer for our athletes. We've purchased new chairs for volleyball, basketball and wrestling events; assisted in the purchase of new bleachers for the gymnasium; new uniforms, equipment, and other expenses such as paying for coaching clinics and team travel expenses. We also try to fund small projects like updating the “ALL-OHIO” pictures displayed in our gym lobby.
Most recently, the boosters assisted with the fundraising for the purchase of new stat panels for our scoreboard and a video display board for the high school gymnasium. This was coordinated with the installation of the new gym floor and air conditioning for the gym/auditorium building which was paid for by the school system. We would like to thank the following companies for their generous donations toward the new scoreboard: First Settlement Orthopedics, Marietta Ignition/Auto Plus, McDonald's, Marietta Memorial Hospital, People's Bank, Settler's Bank, and Smitty's Pizza.
We would like to encourage you to join us today. Together we can make the future brighter for our student athletes. Come to the next booster meeting or contact an officer and get involved. The MHS Athletic Boosters meet the third Monday of every month in the High School Cafeteria. The general meeting is open to the public and starts at 7:00 p.m. Join us soon!
We, as well as our athletes, thank you for your support.
