Club offers scholarships
Sponsored by the Prairie Booster Club the purpose of the “Cliff Holthaus Memorial Scholarship” is to provide graduates of Prairie High School recognition and financial support in pursuit of a post secondary academic or vocational education. Four Prairie High graduates will each be awarded a $200 scholarship. Graduate’s family must be a current Booster Club member (membership dues paid) and the qualities of leadership, civic involvement, respect of others, volunteer activities, extra-curricular participation, academic achievement and work ethic will be considered.
One Prairie High School graduate will be awarded a $250 “Maurice Shinn Sportsmanship Scholarship” by writing a 500 word theme on SPORTSMANSHIP. What sportsmanship means to you and how you have demonstrated sportsmanship through your high school years either as an athlete or a fan. This scholarship is open to all graduating seniors of Prairie High School who plan to attend a college or university in the fall and whose family is a current Club member (membership dues paid).
Applications can be picked up at the counselor’s office at Prairie High School. Application deadline is the third Monday of April. Please turn in your application and accompanying paperwork to the counselor’s office. Questions may be addressed to Linda Nida at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (208)962-7161.
Update on retractable flag project
The Prairie Booster Club would like to thank the individuals and businesses who have donated towards the retractable U.S. Flag to be installed at the Prairie High School gym. This project is an ongoing process with donations still being accepted and appreciated.
The 12’ x 18’ flag, suspended from the ceiling, is a powerful tribute to those who have served in the military and a great way to honor our veterans. Initial cost of the flag is $2,500 and approximately $400 for shipping. Installation and electrical costs will be donated. Contributions to date have exceeded $1,500 and this project will continue to go forward as we are over the halfway mark!! If you would like to donate to this wonderful project please call Chris Kaschmitter at 962-3550 or Shari Chaffee at 962-3559 or you can send your donation to Prairie Booster Club, PO Box 182, Cottonwood, ID 83522.
