Loveland, Ohio – On April 12, Mayor Mark Fitzgerald presented the 2016 Louis G. Rockwood Community Service Volunteer Award to Jeff Williams, who has been President of the Loveland Athletic Boosters for the past nine years. Fitzgerald said that if you look around the state, the schools that are consistently high-quality in athletics and education have a strong booster program.

Williams has four children who attended Loveland schools, the youngest having graduated more than five years ago. Mr. Williams has stayed involved, and under his leadership, the Boosters have raised money for large project such as the turf field and and a weight room at Loveland High School. Fitzgerald added that the Boosters step up to help with hotel rooms in Columbus for State tournaments, and buses to Canton for football championships, “But what you don’t hear about, is how the Boosters help individuals and groups in the community.” The Boosters help students financially who would not otherwise be able to afford the cost.

Williams said that he is surrounded by great people who serve the Boosters and the athletic department. He said that he loves Loveland and it’s an easy place to love. He cares about the community and wanted nothing less than the best for the student athletes. He said this was a great honor and a wonderful surprise. Williams thanked City Council.
