The purpose of the Maury Booster Association is to raise funds to help support the academic programs, clubs, and teams that make Maury an excellent school. The Maury Booster Association also promotes and stimulates school spirit and encourages students, parents, guardians, alumni, faculty, staff and the general community to take an active interest in Maury High School, one of five high schools in the Norfolk Public School system.
What We do
The Maury Booster Association encourages parents, the community, alumni, faculty, staff, and teachers to support Maury High School.
One main way it does this is by raising funds for Maury High School. In 1985 the association began a fall- spring fruit sale. Traditionally, the Boosters sell Florida citrus fruit from November-April. It also sells vine-ripened tomatoes. The fruit sale typically raises more than $13,000 for the school.
In 2006 the Boosters added a second fundraiser, an auction that has raised more than $130,000 in the last three years. Profits from both the fruit sale and auction go directly to benefit Maury High's students. Funds are distributed in two main ways:
- Through grants to Maury High School clubs, academic departments or athletic teams for specific projects or purchases.
- By paying funds directly to the school clubs, athletic teams, and organizations in return for the student volunteers who help with the fruit sale and auction.
