BOOSTER BACKER AWARD RECIPIENTS
In 2002, the Hudson Athletic Booster Club established the Booster Backer Award to recognize individuals or businesses which have exhibited outstanding support of the HABC and its mission of raising funds to support Hudson High School's student athletes. This award was meant to be as equally important to members of the community as the Ray Hyser Award is to our student athletes.
Art and Chris Shibley, owners of Yours Truly Restaurant, were the recipients of the inaugural Booster Backer award for their support of the HABC and Hudson's athletic programs. For many years, Yours Truly has sponsored the Hudson Hub's "Athlete of the Week" award recognizing more than 600 Hudson athletes since its inception. Students heading to state tournaments have enjoyed dinners provided by Yours Truly prior to their departures.
Rich Ison, a member of the HABC Board of Directors, was surprised in May 2004 by the HABC at its Leadership Dinner to be named the second recipient of the Booster Backer Award. !son was honored for his outstanding service to the Booster Club over the past 15 years, most recently as the Publicity Chairman.
