The Everest Collegiate High School cheerleaders not only have bragging rights for their many awards in the school trophy case, but now they have one of their own selected for a nationally competitive college squad. After an intense three-day try-out, senior Hannah Burgess is now officially a cheerleader at Central Michigan University for the coming school year.
Everest cheerleading coach Nancy Burgess (Hannah’s Mom) was very proud. “She beat out girls from a number of D1 programs including Clarkston,” she said.
Hannah’s accomplishment is especially impressive, Nancy said, since Hannah has been recovering from a significant injury to her arm that kept her from competing on the Everest squad for her junior year.
