The goal of the Tuscarawas Valley Trojan Booster Club (TVTBC) is to promote and support the interscholastic athletic programs of Tuscarawas Valley Middle and High Schools. In addition we strive to promote community support for the programs and participation in the organization and it's activities.
The TVTBC raises money to support Tusky Valley Athletics through various fund raisers and activities. For example the TVTBC operates the concession stand for all High School volleyball games in the fall as well as boys & girls basketball games and wrestling matches throughout the winter. The major fund raisers are the TVTBC golf outing which is held every May. Additional fund raisers include the annual Trojan Ball Drop in February, the Night at the Races, 50/50 raffle at all Football and Basketball games and the "barn" at all TV football games where school branded items are sold. Finally the club sets up a food stand at the Atwood Fall Festival and Bolivar Strawberry Festival.
Two recent examples of how these funds benefited Tusky Valley Athletics were the resurfacing of the track at the stadium and new training equipment for the weight room. The TVTBC also helps support and manage each individual sports fundraising efforts. The club strives to ensure the money the community donates whether to the general fund or to a designated sport is used wisely.
The 2020-2021 Officers are President Aaron Stump, Vice President Adam Ernst, Treasurer Jaclyn Norris and Secretary Sarah Perkowski. Board members include Chad Markle, Mike Horger, Julie Cox, Annette Huffman, Celina Kohler, Karla Hall, Sarah Goff and Tom Levengood. Officers serve 1 year terms and Board members serve 3 year terms. Each officer is also a current Board Member. Officers and board members are elected annually at the April meeting.
Becoming a member is easy, just simply attend one of the monthly meetings (held the first Monday of every month in the high school library) and ask to be added to the TVTBC member list. You'll be asked for a mobile phone number, email address and what sports your children participate in. (You don't have to currently have a child participating in a sport to be a member; Grandparents, Uncles & Aunts, etc. are encouraged to join also!) Your obligations as a member are determined by you; feel free to participate in the fund raising efforts as much or as little as you like. If you can't make it to the next meeting but you want to help out contact Adam Ernst, he can be reached at Adam.Ernst@CoxAutoInc.com or 330-243-6285.
