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 offered by the Emmetsburg Community Schools.
For the 2012-13 school year, the Booster Club donated $16,500 to the Emmetsburg High School General Activity Fund to support various activities and specialized equipment needs for all Emmetsburg student athletes.
