WINTON WOODS

Achievement Boosters

From its beginning in 2015 the focus of the Winton Woods Achievement Boosters differed from the Athletic Boosters and the Performing Arts Boosters, organizations that focus on activities—sports and performing arts—that, many times, do not turn out to provide all who participate with a lifetime career platform. Many students who lack these interests and even those who have these interests, but prefer other career platforms, are left out. Students seeking careers in fields other than sports or performing arts need other options This is the Winton Woods Achievement Boosters, Inc. niche.
