Cole Camp High School Cheerleaders, Savanah Pruitt and Raeann Grunden have been selected as All-American Cheerleaders through the Universal Cheerleaders Association (Varsity Spirit).
All-Americans are selected to try out based on superior cheerleading, dancing and leadership skills at camps across the country. Only the top 10% of the more than 325,000 cheerleaders and dancers who attend the 5,000 Varsity summer camp sessions earn the opportunity.
The individuals are invited to perform in the London New Year’s Day Parade and/or the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Their Coach, Jenny Harms is proud to say that “Cole Camp has had All-American cheerleaders now for 5 years in a row!”
