Welcome to the Booster Club!
Oviedo High School NJROTC Booster Club promotes and supports the program through fund raising activities, extra-curricular activities support, educational support, and other assistance that may be requested by the Naval Science Instructors or Administrative Staff.
The NJROTC Booster Club is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, and as such solicits and accepts donations from various organizations for the purpose of administering scholarship funds to graduating seniors, to needy families, and to offset expenses for deserving cadets.
Regular scheduled meetings are usually held the second Tuesday of each month in the NJROTC classroom to discuss current and future projects, as well as any other support needed by the NJROTC program.
Booster Club President’s Message:
On behalf of the Oviedo High School NJROTC Booster Club, I like to welcome new and returning parents of students who are enrolled in the NJROTC program for the 2018-2019 school year. Even if you just browse through some of the pages on this website, you really get a feel for the significant part that this NJROTC program plays in helping our cadets transition into responsible and productive members of society.
The Booster Club assists our cadets with many of the activities and service opportunities they’ll be doing throughout the year. We raise money for items and events not covered under the school’s NJROTC budget, as well as to provide scholarships to select senior cadets.
This will be my fourth year with the Booster Club and I have to say, it’s intrinsically rewarding and it feels good to see the amount of parents volunteering to help out. From the Welcome Aboard Picnic to the Military Ball and all the activities in between throughout the year, parents are there to do whatever needs to be done to help make everything a success. While we raise funds, it’s not just about donating dollars, but donating time, talent, and care. Sometimes it’s hard work, sweating over a grill (I speak from experience), working the concession stand, chaperoning and so on, but it never seems that way. Just good people, working together, doing good things.
I encourage you to come to one of our Booster Club meetings or events and see for yourself. We meet every second Tuesday of each month at 19:00 hours at the NJROTC Unit.
Being involved as a parent sends a clear message to our Cadets that we appreciate their commitment to the program and the Navy’s higher standards. Supporting the program with our time and money provides opportunities for our students to develop leadership skills and will transfer to adult life.
Dexter Conrad – OHS NJROTC Booster President 2018-2019
