LETTER FROM THE ATHLETIC BOOSTER CLUB PRESIDENT

WELCOME TO

THE 2021-22 YEAR!

Greetings!

Thank you taking time to learn more about MVA’s Booster Club. I’m Kristen

Paulsen, Booster Club president and member. Our family has been Booster

Club members for a number of years because it has been a great way for us

to support and connect with the MVA community. We love cheering on our

teams! I’m grateful to Harold Mills, our immediate past-president, for his many

years of amazing support of MVA Athletics, and hope to continue his legacy of

excellence.

The Montverde Academy Athletic Booster Club is a key component in the

fundraising efforts that advance our athletic programs, positioning every team and

student-athlete to compete at this highest level possible. As Harold so eloquently

says, “the Athletic Booster Club’s support is a game changer, making the seemingly

impossible – possible.”

The athletic programs at MVA are world class, the Class of 2020 earned nearly $5

million in scholarships to colleges and universities across the nation, with 65 studentathletes

signing National Letters of Intent. Our MVA Eagle teams have won 14 National

Championships and produced more than 59 graduates who have gone on to play

professional sports.

The Booster Club plays a critical role in the success of all MVA athletic teams and

student-athletes. Every donation, regardless the size, is an investment that helps our

teams compete, provides advanced equipment needed for elite performance and facility

improvements that ensure we are the Academy of choice for top athletes who strive for

excellence in pursuit of their dreams.

Sincerely,

Kristen Paulsen

Athletic Booster Club President

BEHIND THE TEAM!

The purpose and mission of the Montverde Academy Athletic Department

is to fulfill the Academy’s mission through competition. Through athletic

opportunities, student-athletes build a solid foundation based on

character, knowledge, and community. This foundation is a direct

extension of the lessons learned in the classroom on a daily basis. We

expect our student-athletes to be model citizens in the community and

exemplary representatives of the student body, their families, and the

Montverde Academy community, on and off the field of competition. It

is our objective for the entire MVA community to demonstrate good

sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership, fair play, and athletic integrity at

all times with an awareness of how our actions can impact the behavior

of others.
