Adopt a Mustang returns

Mustang Moms are reviving their "Adopt-A-Mustang" program for the varsity basketball boys and girls. The program is designed to let students from kindergarten through sixth grade "adopt" a high school athlete. Students have the chance to adopt a Mustang varsity basketball player (girl or boy) on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2011 at the home game for both teams. Registration is still $25, and students will get a t-shirt and button with their adoptees name and picture. And because the varsity players are in such high demand, students can adopt the same Mustang if they want.The students and their adopted Mustangs or Lady Mustangs will exchange lists of their favorite television shows, movies, games, food, etc., so that they can give each other appropriate treats and presents. Students will also be at basketball games wearing their adoptees t-shirt and button to show their support. Mustang Moms want to make this an annual tradition, so come show your support for the Big Red and Adopt-A-Mustang.Proceeds from this program will also go toward yard signs for varsity sports, metallic streamers that are hung up around town and along the highway, the painting of athlete's driveways and the purchase of water, food, etc. that is used by all sports departments. Last year, the Mustang Moms were able to raise enough money to purchase the Stadium Horn. Within the next year, they hope to contribute towards the purchase of a new tunnel for the players to run through before games.
