On behalf of the Jackson Prep Athletic Booster Club, I would like to thank our sponsors, friends, and Jackson Prep families whose continued support help us provide the necessary assistance to the school, coaches, and student-athletes. By your contributions and the giving of your time, you help ensure that our athletic programs, and all those involved with Prep athletics, continue to be successful. Our goal is not only to maintain our current level of excellence but also to provide students who participate in athletics and spirit teams with the opportunity to better themselves for life after sports.
Your financial support of the Booster Club helps provide equipment, facilities, and training beyond what can be provided by the school. I strongly encourage you to get involved with Jackson Prep Athletics as we aim to achieve a goal of 100% participation by Prep parents. In addition to the financial support required to help build a strong athletic program, we also need you to give your time and talents by volunteering in the concession stands, attending athletic events, purchasing merchandise, and supporting your coaches. We need everyone to help in making Prep athletics second to none. For information regarding Booster Club membership, please contact Janet Stephenson at 601-842-9236 or Spiller McLeod at 601-939-8577.
The Media Guide is a major project of the Jackson Prep Athletic Booster Club. It provides detailed information on all of our teams to media outlets as well as supporters. This project could not happen without the help of Will Crosby, Trudy McLaurin, Spiller McLeod, Lisa Nowell, Olivia Maley, and Dallas Printing. Your contributions to this effort are greatly appreciated. Please be sure to show the advertisers in the Media Guide your appreciation by supporting their businesses and services.
I also want to recognize our Past President, Jane Cory, for her leadership this past year. We say thank you to Jane for all the long hours and hard work she put into this Club over the last three years. York Craig and Lawrence Deas round out the current leadership team, and I want to thank them for their time and service.
On the technology side, Bobby Gross serves as our Program Director & Producer of Prep’s streamed sports broadcasts. He also provides wonderful opportunities for Prep students to gain experience in broadcasting. Also, many thanks to EZ 87.7 radio and Russ Robinson as our “Voice of the Patriots” as well as William and John Andrew Griffin who continue to bring us great commentary and play by play action! How fortunate we are to have our sporting events broadcasted live for those fans who cannot be there on game day.
Finally, the Booster Club cannot say enough about our many coaches who are dedicated not only to helping our students be successful athletes but also to helping them be successful young men and women. Prep coaches are second to none, and I hope we all appreciate the effort and sacrifice they make for our young adults every day.
Come join us as we build on the tradition of excellence and make this coming year one to remember at Jackson Prep. Remember, the Booster Club doesn’t win championships at Prep, but we do provide the tools necessary for our athletes to win them.
