Now that the school year is over, members of the Athletic Boosters Club from Riverbank High School got together this past week to celebrate the departure of its outgoing long-time president, Kimi Jennings.

The Boosters group is made up mostly of parents and friends of current Bruin athletes in the various RHS programs.

It is organized to help provide funds to purchase uniforms and sports equipment for the high school teams, along with scholarships for graduating seniors each year, related to Booster members who help with the fundraising.

The get together was hosted on the evening of Friday, June 7 on the patio at Black Sheep Kitchen and Cocktails, organized by Leandra Givaragiznia, incoming president.

Members of the Boosters group, past and present, were in attendance, along with a number of current or past students.

Jennings is stepping away after spending the past 12 years at the helm of the Boosters group, having shepherded a number of families through the program. She was in service during the school years for three of her own athletes as well, with her youngest graduating from Riverbank High School last month.
