The Grizzly Booster Club was formed in 1993 to provide community encouragement and support for the Southwest Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly athletic teams. Funds raised provide for educational scholarships and other vital program needs. Without the work, commitment, and support of the Grizzly Booster club, Grizzly Athletics would not be possible.
