Booster Club holds luncheon
by David Rohrbach
The Roadrunner Booster Club held its second business sponsor luncheon Sept. 24, in the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center to thank current sponsors and introduce the athletic program to future sponsors.
"I think any time we can have businesses in the community come out to see our facilities and hear the coaches . . . it's always good,” said head women's basketball coach Kevin Bucher. “It doesn't matter if it's one, two or three (people). We were very fortunate to have about seven to 10 businesses at the luncheon. Our goal was to get them excited about being a part of our athletic program."
Guests heard from SFCC President Dr. Marsha Drennon and Vice President of Education and Student Support Services Dr. Brent Bates. Current booster member, Ken Weymuth, owner of W-K Chevrolet, talked about the benefits his business has received from being a business sponsor, and members of the athletic staff also spoke.
"We hope to gain five new Booster Club members as a result of the luncheon,” said Athletic Director Darren Pannier. “We have a very good men’s and women’s athletic program here and a great facility, so it was nice to be able to share our story with people who aren’t familiar with our teams. The head coaches will take packets of information out to those who were not able to attend the luncheon,” said Pannier.
"I want to thank everyone that helped put on the luncheon,” said Bucher. “With all of us working together, it helps make the athletic program that much better. I want to thank the workers who helped out as well . . . and Dr. Drennon and Dr. Bates for taking time out to talk with the guests that were here. Without their support, our program goes nowhere.”
