I would like to thank some very special people that spend endless hours helping the athletes at Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School. Without the help of these people, our athletes would not have the things they have and get to do the things they do.
Thanks to Aleece Williams and Luanne Strader for their help with ticket sales and always being available for any job that needs done; Brian McCourt for coordinating the press box and being statistician at all the games; the press box crew of Brian McCourt, Holt Poling, Jeff Reed, Bill Roby, Dave Weese and Brian Hinkle; Darrell Linger for his help with the softball field; Dave Carson for his many hours running the score board at basketball games; and Dave Chipps for always being available to fill in wherever I need him.
To the boosters, thank you for all you do to help ensure our athletes are given the best and they have the opportunities they need to succeed.
Two special people who need to be recognized for their contributions to the athletes of Upshur County are Tim and Vicki Kelley. They have for many years spent hundreds, if not thousands, of hours doing everything from raising money, cooking lunches and running concession stands, to making sure kids have rides. They define what true boosters are. Thank you Tim and Vicki.
To the citizens of Upshur County, thank you for the contributions you have given. Buccaneer pride truly lives in all of us.
