My Students

My cheerleaders consists of 8th-9th graders. They are extremely hard workers with wonderful attitudes. They love our school and they are leaders among their peers both during sporting events and inside the classroom.

They are the "spirit leaders" of MJH!

These girls deserve to be treated as the athletes they truly are. It's important that they have the same opportunities as other athletes in their school. They must fundraise for everything they need for their sport. I would love to make it easier for them. They deserve it!

My Project

My cheerleaders need the proper protection for the gymnastic portions of their routines including tumbling and stunting. Athletic tape is extremely important to protect and prevent injury during stunts as well as gloves that would protect the girls’ hands when they tumble on the track. Our girls deserve everything they need to protect themselves. We have 16 cheerleaders that use at least 2 rolls per week. Because of this and the amount of money we go through, it would be such a blessing to have some financial help. These girls fundraise for everything they have and it never seems like enough and these are items that I feel are crucial.
