Hermiston Booster Club in partnership with Hermiston High School’s life skills class launches an online apparel site. The students in the life skills class will package and ship all online purchases.

“The Booster Club had the great idea of creating an online store, and the District assisted to make the idea a reality,” said the Director of Special Programs BJ Wilson. “The District was excited to provide an opportunity for students to learn job skills and a venue for students to have interaction with community members. This was a perfect arrangement that met the needs for both.”

The Booster Club’s mission is to enhance the experience of the Hermiston High School student athletes. It looks to provide program support, equipment, travel, supplies, and facility improvements over and above the Hermiston High School athletic budget.

The Booster Club’s clothing and athletic gear income helps fund their Adopt a Dawg program, which provides financial assistance for low-income, student-athletes with out-of-pocket costs. “This program has allowed us to keep more athletes continue participating in sports without worrying how to come up with the required out of pocket costs. In the past we have provided assistance such as shoes, baseball/softball gloves, lacrosse gear, mandatory insurance, and other expenses the athletes must pay to play these sports,” said Booster Club’s treasurer Paul Barnett.
