The Newest Member on the Cheer Team!!!

Brittney Crockett is a new sophmore at my school that has muscle distraphy she was just recently given one year to live and her life time dream was to be a cheerleader! Her mom Heidi went to davis school district and asked if they could make her a cheerleader. They turned her down, saying maybe next year! Heidi didn't fight with them she just nicely thanked them and walked out. I heard this story and with me being on the cheer team I figured it was me who had to make this dream come true for her!! I went to my head captain Elleny Swanson and together we went and talked to my cheer coach! She said yes but she told us we had to go talk to a bigger authority. They of coarse said yes and that they would help her with getting a uniform and all the clothes and everything else. Since brittney has been on the team our team has been more united, the fans at every game yell the brittney cheer, "we love brittney!" and with it being only the 2nd year of the school being open it has made memory that no one will ever forget!!!

Kati! I promise I'm not blog stalking you. I just found a link from Natalie's blog and thought I would hop over and say hi. Just want you to know how much we love and admire you here. I think what you have done for Brittney is the most wonderful thing. Good for you for having the courage (as a sophomore too!) to talk to the people needed to get it moving, and for showing your team that there is more to cheerleading than what meets the public eye. My girls look up to you, and iti s very obvious why. =)
