The President's award is an annual gift to serve a specific need in the Claremont Community with the focus on the long term health and benefit of the youth in town.
"Thanks to the incredible donation by the Claremont Sunrise Rotary we are able to equip our Varsity Football team in the new Riddell Revolution Speed Helmet three years ahead of schedule! Thank you for caring about the safety of the Claremont Football players" Mike Collins, Head Football Coach Claremont High School.
"The main responsibility of the Claremont High School Football Boosters is to support the football program financially. This is a very difficult task during our present economic situation. We are very fortunate this year to have received financial support from Claremont Sunrise Rotary. With the generous donation they have given to our program, our Varsity players are now equipped with Riddell Revolution Speed helmets. These helmets are the latest in "Concussion Reduction Technology". This allows our players to feel more protected and confident while on the field. It also helps to relieve the anxiety of parents and family members who watch from the sidelines." Michael Tyus, President of the CHS Football boosters
