The term booster may carry some unwanted baggage at the college level, but to high schools around Bulloch County, booster clubs can be a godsend when it comes to funding the extracurricular activities of their students. "As a school district, we are allowed to help supplement salaries for those who perform duties beyond the classroom such as athletic coaches," said Dr. Lewis Holloway, superintendent of the Bulloch County school system. "What we cannot pay for are the incidentals that come with extracurricular activities such as sports or the band."
