POPLAR GROVE (WIFR) -- North Boone CUSD 200 would like to thank Poplar Grove State Bank (PGSB) for continuing the Athletic Milestones Advertising Program with the district. PGSB donates $25 dollars for each athletic milestone reached by the North Boone Vikings.
This fall, for each home touchdown in football, home service ace in volleyball, team or individual win in cross country, each home soccer goal and each home golf birdie or hole in one, North Boone earns $25. This can build up to $1000 per season and $3000 per year. The funds go to assist paying for athletic costs.
According to Kent Kniep, President of PGSB, "We are proud to be a part of the North Boone Athletic Milestone Advertising Program. While we believe it provides excellent exposure for the bank in the North Boone area, we also hope it provides some incentive for the athletes and some financial help to the district to keep providing top-tier programs for the kids."
Dale Purvis, NBHS assistant principal and athletic director stated, "PGSB has always been a valued partner of this community. They have invested in the youth of this community for a long time through sponsoring little league teams, 4-H auction purchases, Booster Club donations, and numerous other donations. We are lucky to have such a caring partner."
North Boone Community Unit School District 200 serves approximately 1700 students in pre-school through high school in the Villages of Caledonia, Capron and Poplar Grove as well as the northern tier of unincorporated Boone County, Illinois.
