Would you like to be a part of what makes the Wildcat Forensics team one of the most successful speech and debate teams in the district?  Would you like to support the team members and incoming coach?  If so, please consider joining the Cy-Woods Forensics Booster Club’s Executive Board for the 2015-2016 school year.

Working with all the speech and debate parents, the five-member Booster Club Board hosts the Big Cat Classic Tournament during the last weekend of September.  The booster club manages the judge hospitality room, student concession sales and volunteer judge recruitment.  The next biggest endeavor is the team Garage Sale (usually the first weekend in November).  At the garage sale, the board works with students to take in donations, set up for the sale and works during the garage sale.  The board also works with the team student leadership and coach to host the end-of-year banquet, to plan tournament activities and to support the summer debate camp.

All board members work together, but here are some general duties for each Board position:

  • President – Coordinates Big Cat Classic, events and runs board meetings. Manages communication with coach and parents.  Informs parents of tournament dates, student participation and tournament results.
  • Treasurer – Accounts for all monies collected. Pays all invoices. Files tax reports and required school district reports.
  • Secretary – Keeps minutes at meetings. Handles board correspondence.
  • VP Fundraising – Collects donations and raises money for Big Cat Classic. Supervises garage sale.
  • VP Volunteers – Lines up judges for Big Cat Classic and volunteers for garage sale.

If you have any questions about being on the board, please contact one of the current board members:

In order to have a successful year, the team NEEDS a strong Booster Club!  If you are interested in serving on the 2015-16 Executive Board, please send an email to Angela Goodwin ( by April 21st.
