Big Red boosters say thanks

To the editor:

The mission of the Big Red Boosters Club has always been to enhance the Steubenville City Schools student-athletes through a broad range of community programs and activities that support SHS athletics. We have always functioned in an advocacy role for the student-athletes of Steubenville High School.

With this mission statement in mind, we have just completed two of our major fundraising events, the Night At the Races and the Lewis B. Giammarco Booster Appreciation Dinner. Both of these events were a huge success, thanks to your support.

Without the help of Joe DiAlbert at the Spot Bar; Mike McVey, superintendent of the Steubenville City Schools; and Lynnette Gorman, principal of Pugliese West Elementary School, this would not have been possible. Also, special thanks to Romaine Turrentine and Margie Radakovich for their usual outstanding job with the decorations.

The foundation of any program is the many patrons and sponsors. We are very fortunate to have them and are indebted to their continued unyielding interest.

As we enter a new school year and sporting events, we will continue to support and maintain the high expectations for success and the proud traditions that are set at Steubenville High School.

Thank you again for your support. Roll Red Roll.
