Bath Achievement Boosters Reward Both Students And Teachers For Academic Success

Warm Springs, VA – At Bath County High School the Achievement Booster Club works to reward academic success and good work done by students. But the students are not the only ones that the club recognizes and supports. Achievement Booster Club President Roy Burns says both students and their teachers are rewarded when students do well academically.

In addition to pizza and ice cream parties for students, teachers earn gift certificates from local businesses and are treated to special breakfasts or dinners out. The Booster Club also gives several scholarships to graduating seniors each year.

The Achievement Boosters sponsor the student talent show each spring as a fundraiser, and sell raffle tickets and concessions at sporting events. One of the biggest fundraisers of the year is the 7th annual scholarship tee off golf tournament on Sunday April 25. It will be held at the Lower Cascades at The Homestead. All of the money raised at the golf tournament is used for college scholarships.

Students are recognized by the Achievement Boosters at the awards ceremony at the end of the school year. For more information about the scholarship tee off golf tournament call the Bath Chamber at 839-5409. You can also learn more about the Achievement Boost Club by calling Bath County High School.
