Each year, Booster club memberships offer supporters of Emmetsburg athletic programs a chance not only to assist in the ongoing efforts of the student athletes, but also an opportunity for boosters to be recognized for their support. Through the yearly membership in the E-Hawk Booster Club, the monies raised are used to provide additional financial support to all athletic programs.
In the 2011-2012 school year, a donation of $11,940 was given to the Emmetsburg Community Schools Athletics Budget, which is used directly for the needs of the student athletes.
