There are so many exciting things happening at RJ Reynolds this time of year! Things continue to look a little different than we are used to, but seeing our Demons perform and play and return to campus is a welcome site!

Adopt a Senior Demon! is underway on Facebook. We would like for every, single senior to have a sponsor family to send them encouraging notes, gift cards, and a final gift basket to celebrate them as they move through this challenging time and join RJR alumni. Feel free to reach out to Ms. Kirkland with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org

Booster Club News
A year ago was the first time we held a reverse raffle event to raise money for the RJR Athletic Booster Club, and it turned out to be such a fun and successful night!
With no way to hold fundraisers this year, the RJR Athletic Booster Club needs your help more than ever. Your support last year made it possible for students to attend Reynolds sporting events that otherwise wouldn’t have. Please help us reach our goal of raising $17,000 this year. Money raised will help fulfill so many needs for our student athletes and coaches.
