Who We Are


Panther Booster Club is approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) Charity, and our sole obligation is to support our schools. We ensure that our students have a more rewarding high school and middle school experience by recognizing students who excel in academics, arts, and athletics. We also help purchase much needed equipment and supplies -- as well as travel fund expenses -- for Paola High School and Paola Middle School organizations and programs. All donations are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated.
