Each year the LT Booster Club provides funds to different student programs at Lyons Township High School as part of its annual appropriations of monies raised through booster fundraising efforts. The LT Booster Club funds items which enhance student life, are of lasting value that will benefit large number of students or assist student groups unable to access other funding sources. LT Booster funding is not intended to fund items of life-safety, core curriculum or other items more appropriately covered in the school budget or student fees. Grant requests come from sponsors of various areas throughout the school, including academic divisions, activities sponsors, arts directors and the athletic department. All requests are reviewed and approved by the booster board members and school administration.

During the 2015-16 school year we were pleased to assign nearly $80,000 in funds to 22 different student group requests from academics, activities (clubs), arts and athletics. Highlights of this year’s appropriations include:

  • Over $3375,000 for scholarships
  • Baseball and Softball field dugouts
  • Gymnastics team vault runway and record board
  • Concession stand and upgraded sound system at Bennett Field
  • Antennae for WLTL, the school’s radio station
  • Plasma TV monitors at both campuses for announcements
  • Scoreboards at the North Campus Field House and South Campus Baseball Field
  • Model United Nations conference registration fees
  • National Hispanic Institute Leadership Program registration fees
  • Upgraded sound system in the Reber Center
  • Instrument donation for the Marching Band
  • Annual contributions to the Prom and Post-Prom Committees and the Parent Community Network for Parent University
