To the Editor:

My name is Rhonda Brattain and I have recently been elected to lead the McNary Athletic Booster Club into its second year. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue the work of resigning president Bill Doutt, as he commits additional time to his career pursuits. The efforts of this past year have proven beneficial for all of our athletic programs. We are in the process of rehabilitating McNary’s athletic training room and are expecting completion in May. A community open house will be held when completed.

I want to thank those who have faith in me to provide the leadership needed to grow and sustain McNary ABC. My focus will be in uniting our athletic programs and rallying the Keizer community to support McNary student athletes. I encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about the club to attend our next meeting, Wednesday, April 3 in the McNary library at 7:30 p.m.

I would also like to invite you to participate in a very special event. We will be holding our second annual Dinner & Auction at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 1 at the Keizer Civic Center. We will also be hosting a golf tournament at the McNary Golf Club in conjunction with the McNary girls and boys golf teams. Tickets can be purchased through a booster member or online at

This year our theme is Dream Big, and we encourage you to help us Dream Big!

Rhonda Brattain
