MHS Booster Club

Booster Club Plan Outlined
Plans to organize a Milbank Booster Club were revealed by Adolph Shepardson, district athletic director, at the October school board meeting.  “This is the next step in rebuilding our athletic program,” he said. “It will be based on three principles – service, spirit and support. It will be a great way for parents to give back.”
Shepardson indicated his main goal this year will be the formation of the club to be activated in the 2020-21 school year. He is studying similar clubs in schools such as Madison, Dell Rapids, Mitchell, Brookings and Lennox. “Anyone can be part of the Booster Club, but it will be primarily parents who have children participating in activities,” he said. 
The club will bring the fundraising for all school activities, not just sports, under one umbrella with concession stand profits the primary support, eliminating the individual fundraising by the different groups. “The goal is to get rid of all the extra fundraising, and have one big event a year,” Shepardson stated. Smaller fundraising ideas such as tailgates, golf tournaments and 50/50 raffles would also be utilized. Funds would be distributed to the various groups to aid in their activities. Funds could also be used for facilities, equipment, travel, uniforms, meals, awards and banquets and many other items.
Shepardson informed the board that his goal was to work out all the details by the end of the school year, and report back to the members in the spring.
