To the editor:
Working as one, eight girls have learned camaraderie, team work, dedication and achievement. Unfortunately, fewer students from Oakcrest High School will be likely to have this experience because of the $725 per rower price tag assessed by the Oakcrest Crew Booster Club.
As a parent of a graduating senior rower, this 80 percent increased fee from $400 from the previous year troubled me. Those who asked why the fee had been raised exponentially were informed they did not participate enough in fundraisers and the fees associated with crew had increased dramatically.
