乌鸦运动俱乐部:通过志愿服务取得胜利

With more than 10 state championships and dozens of conference titles in the last decade alone, Ravenscroft 运动 competitions are some of the most spirited in the Triangle. 每年, more than 80% of 中间 and 上学校 students participate in sports, a testament to Ravenscroft’s outstanding program and its coaches.

While the school has definitely had its share of cheering fans over the years, alumni parent Frances Penick remembers a time when school spirit wasn’t as visible. Determined to get more parents excited about 运动s, she and two other mothers — Ginny Barnett and Christy Peyton — tooled around the 运动 fields in a golf cart, selling Ravenscroft spirit items and branded water bottles. 他们的努力得到了回报, 随着参加比赛的人数增加, and in 2003 a new volunteer organization was born to help support the school’s Athletic Department: the 乌鸦体育俱乐部澳门线上赌城官方APP熟悉的RAC.

Many of those spirit items now grace the concession stands at every home game, 佩尼克感到无比自豪. 作为RAC的第一任总裁, she worked with other parents to help create the club’s bylaws and mission: to support all aspects of 运动s through school spirit, 良好的体育精神和志愿者承诺. 多年来, 志愿者们为大型锦标赛提供工作人员, 管理小卖部, 组织 动员大会 and senior recognition ceremonies, and host the annual 同学会的庆祝活动澳门银河线上官方APP高尔夫精英赛 在北岭乡村俱乐部, which raises money to enhance and promote the school’s 运动 项目. “I’m in awe of how the parents have taken our vision forward,谈到RAC的成长和成功,Penick说道.

Ravenscroft’s longtime Athletic Director Ned Gonet has worked with RAC since its infancy and praises its volunteers. “作为一个运动项目, we want to put our best foot forward for our visitors, 献给澳门线上赌城官方APP的粉丝, 为了澳门线上赌城官方APP的社区,尽澳门线上赌城官方APP所能做到最好,他说. “RAC volunteers make sure we’re doing things in a first-class manner, 我认为这就是《澳门银河线上官方APP.”

RAC concessions volunteers such as Ingrid Bennett and Karen Gring, 2018年上映, 给他们的工作带来热情和精神.


Recent projects have included adding signage to the 中学 gym, 组织精神周,筹集5万美元 翻新和重新装备A.E. 芬利活动中心的健身房 in 2019. This year, the group contributed $30K toward the school’s purchase of PlaySite, a platform that will 转播画面 most of the school’s sporting 事件s — a boon for families and fans during the pandemic but also an outstanding long-term investment for the program. 首席信息官杰森·拉姆斯登解释道, PlaySite还可以显示即时回放, 记录分数并编制练习录像.

That’s not the only silver lining from this challenging season. RAC President Jane Hamlin noted that the group has put extra effort into recognizing athletes and promoting 项目. “We made signs for all the senior football players and cheerleaders for the first home games, since only senior parents were allowed to be there then. 这是一个很好的识别孩子的方式,”她说.

这种志愿者的承诺是持久的. 许多RAC官员, 比如前总统金·马森, continue to be involved in RAC after their tenure ends — some even after their children have graduated. “澳门线上赌城官方APP愿意不惜一切代价,”马森说.
