The Houghton High School All Sport Booster Club received a check for $500 at the high school football game last Friday to support funding for middle school and high school sports teams.
The all-sport booster club provides funding for every sport at Houghtonâ??s middle school and high school for uniforms, scholarships, and fan buses.
The $500 check came from Michigan Tech Employees Federal Credit Union. Booster club parents say it shows that the community supports its athletes and schools.
â??I think we just want to make it a community event,â?? said booster club president, Sue Mewbourn. â??We know what we do for the school, and the school is just a big part of our community, and we just want to show our appreciation and just have a fun event.â??
The booster club celebrated the donation with a tailgate party before the game for the community.
