As the school year winds down, seniors are preparing for graduation, juniors will become seniors and eighth-graders will become freshman. There will be many students preparing to play sports in the coming fall.
As you may have read in several Patch's stories, Perry Hall High School's sports teams are highly accomplished. While it's the talent of the students that makes the teams thrive, much of their success comes from the support the of Perry Hall High School Athletic Booster Club.
The club supports the sports programs by offering scholarships to graduating seniors, providing sports awards and trophies, making sure that sports equipment is provided and replaced when needed and offering athletic enrichment programs. Without the support of volunteers, these things would not be possible.
Volunteers are needed all through the school year to help with fundraising events, including an annual Bull Roast usually held in March, awards banquets and working concession stands at home games.
"As a 'volunteer only' non-profit organization, the Perry Hall High School Athletic Boosters rely heavily on our high school family (including students, parents, relatives, friends and high school administrators) along with the local community. Perry Hall is the largest high school in Baltimore County and requires additional support. Only through active volunteerism, community involvement, fundraising activities and the charitable contributions of many are we able to continue to provide the much needed support to the student athletes and the athletic programs of the high school," said Tony Taylor, club president.
There is no training needed to volunteer. Any time that a volunteer can give will be graciously accepted.
"Our volunteers range from young siblings of the high school students, the high school students themselves, to the parents and grandparents of the high school students. Our volunteers do not have to have students at the high school. Anyone is welcome," said Tamee Taylor, recording secretary of the club.
Beside individual volunteers, the club is looking for the support of local businesses and community leaders to help with stadium and campus improvements. For instance, restroom facilities and water are needed in the stadium and the campus grounds particularly the lower level field is in need of maintenance and improvements.
"There is much to do and we are committed to doing all that we can, but need the help and support of others in order to continue to make a positive impact on the Perry Hall High School sports community," Taylor added.
