This week’s Member Spotlight is on the Tishomingo Athletic Booster Club (TABC). The organization is organized and operated to encourage, support, and promote sportsmanship, character, leadership, school spirit and pride in a manner that represents Tishomingo Public School and the community in a positive fashion. This organization promotes and supports all high school sports in the district.
The Club helps to support the Tishomingo Athletic Department with items requested by the Athletic Director via the coaches, including equipment for practices and games, maintenance items, and more. Already this year, the Booster Club has provided funding for new carpet in the weight room of the field house and recently put finishing touches on a remodel of the lobby and gymnasium walls. The remodel took the entirety of the summer with 3-4 volunteers and includes a fresh white coat of paint in the lobby area and restrooms with new black trim, white paint on the inside of the gym where tan previously existed, as well as new paint on the stairwells to the locker rooms and the north entrances. The Club believes the players, fans and community will be impressed by the transformation and clean look! These additions pair well with the gym floor renovation. Last year, the Club provided much needed football equipment including new concussion helmets.
Each year, the Booster Club sells pink-out shirts and all profits are donated to either Johnston County Reaching Out or OU Children’s in Stevy Cellum’s honor.
The TABC sponsors the annual athletic banquet, including the meal, awards given in each sport and picture collages for the senior athletes. This is possible through the community’s continued support by buying spirit t-shirts, stadium chairs, fall/winter/spring program ads, donations, participation in fundraisers, etc. Some other things that TABC does “behind the scenes” includes preparing and purchasing programs, providing a meal to each sport once a year and purchasing roses for Senior Nights.
The TABC welcomes anyone that is interested in helping with and becoming a part of this volunteer organization to please like and follow their Facebook page. Sharing content is just as helpful as attending meetings. Please watch this page for upcoming information about 2020-2021 sports and fundraisers.
