BOOSTER CLUB MISSION
It is the mission of the Southwest High School Booster Club to provide financial support and the parent/student involvement necessary to maintain quality sports programs.

Primarily, the monies of the booster club will be expended for:
1. Capital improvements of athletic facilities.
2. Maintaining and repairing equipment.
3. Necessary purchases for athletics teams.
4. Awards, banquets and recognitions.
The primary booster meetings are the Second Monday of the each month at 7:00 (unless otherwise noted) in the Media Center. All parents and anyone interested are invited to attend.
