  • The Greenback Booster Club is starting its annual membership drive. Members of the Booster Club are excited to start a new school year.
    The Greenback Booster Club raises money to help support Pratt High School athletics. With the continued budget pressures from Topeka, local support for PHS athletics is increasingly important.
    All money raised goes directly to support PHS athletes. The Booster Club also provides hospitality to officials, tournament workers and visiting coaches so that successful events can be held that in turn bring dollars into the community.
    Among the items provided through Booster Club funds in the past few years are much needed new uniforms and equipment; wall mats for the gym, weights and machines for the weight room; mats for the wrestling room; crosscountry and football software; and equipment lockers.  This is just a sampling to show how Booster Club funds go to support all sports at Pratt High.
    The Greenback Booster Club also needs volunteer help to be able to carry out the various functions it serves. Members’ efforts are needed for such tasks as selling raffle tickets at football and basketball games; working at the Soap Bowl fall feed/membership drive and the Homecoming hog feed; providing food/labor at various hospitality rooms; working concessions at the Tournament of Champions, which is one of the Booster Club’s signature events.
    The Booster Club culminates each school year with the All Sports Banquet where the athletic accomplishments of the year are reviewed, graduating athletes are recognized and the year’s Senior Athletes honored.
    There are a number of levels of participation available as the accompanying membership form shows. Each level has different privileges associated with it, as shown. Select the level you feel most comfortable with and display your Greenback pride by becoming a member of the Greenback Booster Club.
