School Board Approves Back the Blue Event

Posted on 18 May 2017 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone School Board has approved a proposal submitted this week by Boone High School junior Kate Peasley.  Peasley, has been selected to attend the FBI NAA Youth Leadership Program that will be taking place in Quantico, Virginia this summer.  Kate will be the state of Iowa’s representative.  Her selection to this program requires her to plan and implement a service project honoring a hero in her community.

Kate has developed a “Boone County Backs the Blue” service project to honor current and retired area law enforcement officers on Tuesday, June 14th, during the Boone High School vs Ogden High School baseball game. All officers and their immediate families are invited to attend the game free of charge with their police ID. Officers will be honored on the field prior to the varsity game beginning around 7:15 with the game to follow.

In addition to honoring county law enforcement for this service project, Kate is raising money for the Iowa C.O.P.S. organization that helps support families of fallen officers.  “Boone County Backs the Blue” shirts are available to order with proceeds from the shirt going to Iowa C.O.P.S.

A statement released today by the Boone School District says:   The Boone vs Ogden baseball game is an in-county rivalry game that is historically well attended. We believe that honoring our law enforcement officers that night will bring even more people to the ballpark, bringing our communities together in a family-friendly environment.  We hope to see a great turnout from all of Boone County to come together for a great event and an even greater cause!
