The Booster Club would like to thank the following Booster Club Board Members who will be moving on. Diane Roberts, co-president and Debbie Knight, treasurer have both been instrumental in making sure that the Booster Club remains an important and relevant organization within Newton South. Their wisdom, hard work, love of sports, and pride — in the achievements of not only their own children but all of South’s student athletes — have enhanced the quality of sports at South. They both will be missed greatly, and we wish them good luck.
Also thank you to Abby Stacks, Elyssa Friedman, and Jane Quinn, who made sure that the Spiritwear table was full of products and staffed throughout the year on Fridays as well as during the special evening events; Howard Marget, who kept our web site updated; Kathryn DeNitto, who ensured that communications were done in a timely manner; and Kathy Houston-Read, Martha Lipson, Sue Hardy and Elaine Polasky, who served on our board. A heartfelt thanks to Pat Gonzalez, AD; Dave Padgett, Assistant AD; PJ Quern, trainer, and Barbara Castoldi, Administrative Assistant, for all their hard work on behalf of all of our students and coaches. A particular shout-out to Bruce Henderson, who makes sure the Athletics News goes out every Friday, typo-free, readable, and grammatically correct.
Finally a thank-you to all of our parents and families who have supported the Booster Club and athletics at South throughout the year with donations, volunteering, cheering, driving, online/on-time registering, and overall support of our coaches, administration, and students. It’s been a wonderful year.
