The Mercer County Athletic Booster Club Needs Your Help

The primary purpose of the Mercer County Athletic Booster Club (MCAB) is to raise funds to support the financial needs of the athletic programs at the Mercer County Junior High and High School. Without the monetary support provided by the Boosters, our athletic programs would look very different. The amount of support provided is a direct result of the funds raised through various activities. Participation as a member, coach, or volunteer not only increases the success of the Mercer County Athletic Departments, but it teaches our student-athletes the importance of community involvement.
Thanks to the contributions of all members, we have been able to provide many athletic teams with financial assistance. Here are just a few examples:

  • Donation to the Track & Field renovation project
  • Hotel rooms for overnight tournaments for JH and HS wrestlers
  • Awards and certificates for all HS athletes
  • Numerals, patches, and Varsity letters for all HS athletes
  • College scholarships for qualifying senior athletes
  • Golden Eagle mascots for JH and HS
  • Funds to offset fees for summer basketball leagues
  • Timer for JH track
  • Collapsible tent for cross country/track
  • Golf balls and umbrellas for golf team

For more information on becoming a member or to hear about volunteering opportunities, please contact Nat Zunkel at MCHS or one of our current officers: Jesse Harrison, Nikki Taylor, or Angie DeBlock.
