Dear Editor:

Due to budget cuts, many of the activities offered by the Jenkins County school system could not be offered if not for the tireless fundraising efforts of the Jenkins County Athletic Booster Club (JCABC). This money allows our youth the ability to participate in extracurricular activities, perform at optimum academic levels and develop into well rounded adults.

The JCABC supports our students in many ways. The following activities receive monetary contributions from the club each year: band, baseball, basketball, spirit cheerleading, competition cheerleading, football, cross country, One Act Play, JROTC, tennis, softball and track. The club also provides the Robert Williams Scholarship, awards, trophies, athletic letter jackets and hosts the fall and spring sports banquets.

Our annual Boston butt fundraiser was held Good Friday, April 22. We are proud to announce it was a great success. Thanks to everyone who purchased our butts, and a very special “thank you” to the following who donated to help purchase the butts and other supplies needed: Jenkins County Fire Department; Jenkins County Commissioners; Linda and Ed Fuller; Clint, Yvonne, Mason and Cad Davis; Regions Bank employees; Sheriff Robert Oglesby, deputies and staff; Susanne, Hunter and Flint Clark; Proctor Construction; One Body Gym, I Spy Pest Control, Superior Alarm, Joyner Defensive Driving, Shelby’s CafĂ©, Round’s Pizza, Seafood and More and Round’s Fishin Hole. The Eagles will continue to soar because of you!

If anyone would like more information on how to help the JCABC or how to become a Booster members, please contact Mandy Underwood at (478) 982-982-8004 or Christa Morris at (478) 982-2390.

Thanks,

Christa J. Morris
