The Edgewood Athletic Booster Association presented two generous donations at the June 25 Board of Education meeting. A $10,000 check was presented by Tom Miller, Vice President, and Lisa Whiles, Treasurer, from the Athletic Booster Association, to Gary Gabbard, Board President. This check was the final payment, of a ten year commitment, for the Kumler Turf Field project. In total, the Athletic Boosters contributed $100,000 to this project. “We were pleased to be a part of that purchase and know how much having a state of the art surface to play on makes with our athletes”, said Lisa Whiles. A second donation was presented totaling $37,268 for the benefit of Edgewood student athletes and academic team members. This donation will be divided among the students who participate on a sport or academic team during the school year. The funds are allocated on a per-student amount, and will be deposited to the Team Accounts. The funds will be used towards camps, uniforms, supplies, and other needs. Edgewood Athletic Booster Association also awards college scholarships annually. The grand total of all financial support provided this year by the Edgewood Athletic Boosters was $52,268. Whiles stated, “We are pleased to be able to provide these gifts to our students and hope to continue to do so for many years to come”.
