September signals the start of many high school sports as area kids get back to school. At the start of every school year, Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center contributes $2,500, which is divided among each of the boys and girls sports, activities and clubs at Lakeland Union High School (LUHS).
The sports funded include baseball, softball, basketball, golf, hockey, football, volleyball, dance team, soccer, cross country, wrestling, tennis, swimming, track & field, and Nordic skiing.
Clubs and activities funded include: DECA, drama, forensics, FBLA, German club, pep band, choir, mock trial, visual arts classic, Spanish Club, teen court, student council, yearbook, T-Bird newspaper and National Honor Society.
“This donation is greatly appreciated by all LUHS organizations and helps in sustaining our vast array of student programs,” LUHS activities director Phillip Updike said. “As activities director, I would like to thank Marshfield Clinic for this generous contribution.”
“Each year, Marshfield Clinic contributes scholarship funds to support the academic efforts of students pursuing careers in the health care field,” said Dr. Michael Schaars, medical director, Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center. “But we feel it’s also important to support all of LUHS’s co-curricular activities as these help our area youth develop into well-rounded, healthy adults.”
