Waitsburg Booster Club - Booster of the Year Awards
February 8, 2024
WAITSBURG- The 2024 Booster of the Year Awards were presented by Club President Ross Hamann during halftime at the boys varsity basketball game against Yakama Tribal on Friday, February 2. Becky Harshman and Karen Huwe received well-deserved applause and recognition from the crowd attending the game.
Becky Harshman nomination:
"Becky is truly deserving of special recognition as she has served the booster club with tireless dedication and enthusiasm. Not only did she serve as a Club Officer and Treasurer for over 12 years, Becky also helped keep the booster club alive during the lowest times of support during the combine years. When others were ready to give up, Becky said, "No" we need to keep going. This club is going to make a comeback! Becky was right, because of her perseverance, the Booster Club is thriving with more members and more interest than ever before!"
Karen Huwe nomination:
"As the renewed interest in the Booster Club accelerated with support last year, Karen has gone above and beyond to build membership, promote club fundraisers, sell club merchandise, deliver products to people's homes, and serve as a board member. Karen never stops promoting and supporting the kids in this community. You will find Karen at every home game, as she is always serving in some capacity, from running the scoreboard or working the scorebook, coaching the younger kids, or helping with open gym. Karen cares deeply about kids and the community and she shows it with her actions."
