Last meeting of the school year. Meet in the library.
We will kick-off with a facilities tour to showcase the new concession stand, and to view the Exercise Room in its current state to explain the capital expenditure request for support of additional equipment.
If you are interested in being involved with the athletic booster club, there are liaison spots for certain sports. More people is better!
Please contact Lisa White, our co-secretary for more information about openings (including a co-secretary spot for next year!)
We are always looking for more supporters (parents, grand-parents, alumni) to keep things moving, so if you've got the time, we've got the need.
We will outline some of the volunteer roles IABC is looking for your help with including but not limited to: Ram Shack concession stand co-manager to oversee operations - already have 1 co-manager in place, Sponsorship outreach and support, Event support for the Champions Breakfast. Nick of Time (heart screenings) is potentially coming back to Ingraham next year. We'll need some help with that event.
Tell us your skills, or desired way to help and the amount of time you have to offer and we can find ways to work alongside us to support these kids!

SEATTLE - It was a special night for a beloved high school basketball coach. Walt Milroy coached at Seattle's Ingraham High School for 21 seasons. Friday night, February 3td, the school honored the 97-year-old by renaming its basketball floor "Walt Milroy Court".
Milroy helped lead the Rams to two Metro League titles, and a state championship. He also coached our current governor, Jay Inslee.
Inslee said, "We not only had a great basketball coach, but a guy who told us how to be a competitor in life and fight through the tough times, and I'm so happy that our state has a Walt Milroy."
Milroy retired from coaching in 1990.
