The Booster Club donated $3,500 to the Prairie Jr/Sr High School to help offset the costs of a few high school purchases.  $2,500 will help with the purchase of a new sound system at the football field/track.  This new system will allow for a wireless microphone as it will be used at the finish line for track meets and other activities at the athletic complex with much better sound.  $1,000 will help with supplies for a new printer being purchased for the high school.  The technology classes will have the opportunity to make banners, decals, vinyl prints, etc. for businesses, community members, and the school with this printer.  This printer will be a learning process, but a tremendous asset to the community when it is in full production.  The high school hopes to have the printer in full swing by Fall, 2020.  We want to thank the booster club for their donation and continued support for the Cottonwood School District.  Pictured is Booster Club treasurer Denise Uhlenkott presenting the check to High School Principal Jon Rehder.  Photo provided by Lynn Rehder.
