Outstanding Tiger Booster
Beginning this year, the Falls City Tiger Booster Club is giving out a new award, simply called…. “Outstanding Tiger Booster”. The recipient of this award shows his or her dedication to the participants and coaches of Falls City Athletics. This first winner has been hand selected by the current board of the 2017-2018 school year Booster club. It is the board’s hope that current and past members and fans will nominate future winners. Without this years winner’s drive and dedication, the Booster Club would not be what it is today. Presenting this award is this years president Robbie Craig and other members of the booster club. It is only fitting that the initial winner would be one of the founders of the Falls City Booster Club. The Falls City Tiger Booster Club would like to honor Hank Schwartz with this special award.
In the summer of 1970, Hank Schwartz was part of an enthusiastic group of Tiger Fans who formed the Tiger Booster Club. The purpose of the original Booster Club was to always be there to show the athletes and coaches that they could depend on the Booster Club’s support. Also, high on the list of expectations was promoting the “Orange and Black” school colors and encouraging “Good Sportsmanship”. Since 1970 … Hank has continued to be a dedicated Tiger fan by continuously serving on the Booster Club board. His guidance and positive
attitude has been extremely important in the success of the Tiger Booster Club over the years. This year will begin Hank’s 48th year on the Board of Directors.
Hank has been a faithful Tiger fan the past 48 plus years. Since graduating from High School, Hank did his best not to miss a HOME or AWAY football game. Therefore, Hank has attended over 600 Falls City Tiger football games. He has missed less than 10 games. Many former athletes in the crowd know that Hank would be at their respective football game, wearing his signature “Tiger orange” and cheering on the “boys”. He is always positive, ready with words of congratulations, and looking forward to
the next football game on the schedule. Hank has also been an avid basketball fan, also attending HOME and AWAY games. With the arrival of girls sports at Falls City High School, Hank found a place in the stand to cheer on the Lady Tigers, too. This award is our way to say “Thank YOU HANK!” Because of your energy, insight and enthusiasm, the Falls City Tigers have an active Booster Club, that supports our athletes and sports programs in positive ways.
