Academic Booster Club

History and Purpose:

The South Greene High School Academic Booster Club was organized in 1995, with the purpose of promoting and enhancing academic achievements for all students at South Greene.  Mrs. Kathy Austin, County School Board member, was the first president and one of the principal organizers.  Due to the tremendous support of parents, faculty, students, alumni, interested individuals in the community, and businesses, this organization has been able to award thousands of dollars in scholarships and recognize hundreds of students for academic excellence since its inception. This year alone we were able to award $10,500 in academic scholarships to deserving SGHS students.

 

Academic Booster Club Activities:

Annual Academic Honor's Program: This event is held in the spring of each year, where students are awarded certificates, academic medals, chevrons, and academic letters for making the A or B honor roll and for their GPA. 

Academic Scholarships:   Through an application process, students are chosen by a scholarship committee based on specific qualifications and criteria. These are awarded at the Annual Academic Honor's Program in the spring.   

Students of the Year: These students are chosen by the faculty and staff for their overall outstanding performance for the year and are recognized and awarded at the Annual Academic Honor's Program.

Students of the Month: Each month, the club honors an outstanding boy and girl from each grade.  These students are chosen by the faculty.  This award is based on good citizenship, service, and grades.  Students selected receive a certificate, a free combo meal donated by a local restaurant, and their names are displayed on a bulletin board in the school hallway.

Faculty and Staff Appreciation: The club honors the South Greene faculty and staff with meals during National Education Week.  Many parents participate by making dishes or donating items to make these meals possible.

 

Important Fundraising Projects:

The Annual Benefit Golf Tournament:  The golf tournament is the main event that funds the activities of the Academic Booster Club. This event is the held in the fall. Many local businesses participate in the golf tournament by entering a team, or providing individual hole sponsorships, or by donations.

Vendor Discount Cards: At the beginning of each school year the club sells vendor discount cards in which many local businesses participate.

 

Meetings:

Meetings are held monthly, as needed, usually on a Tuesday or Thursday night.

The SGHS Academic Booster Club is always open to new fundraising ideas.  We welcome any parent, student, or community member to join our organization.
