Blitz Drive receives pledges for more than $62,000
Hoping to raise more than $59,000 for Tiger Booster Club Scholarships, Cowley College coaches, employees, and members of the community took to the streets for the school’s annual Blitz Drive on Thursday and easily surpassed this year’s goal.
According to Cowley College athletic director Tom V. Saia, Thursday’s pledges totaled more than $62,000 for the TBC.
“This is why we have got one of the top athletic departments in Community College, because of the support we get,” Saia said. “The coaches did a great job of getting out and visiting with people, and I appreciate all the people who helped with the event. This shows the community’s support for what the coaches and student-athletes are doing here at Cowley.”
During the past year, Tiger athletic teams combined for two national championships, nine national tournament appearances, eight conference championships, and seven region titles.
In addition, several Tiger athletes have been named to the 2010-2011 All-American and Academic All-American teams.
The Tiger Booster Club has six levels of membership that range from $100 to $2,500. TBC members are admitted free to all Tiger sporting events.
There is still time to register for the first annual Tiger Booster Club Poker Run on July 2 and the Tiger Skins/Brian Groves Memorial Golf Tournament at the Arkansas City Country Club on Aug. 6.
