Cheer and Dance Teams Active in Community, Around State

Oskaloosa–The Statesmen cheer and dance programs have been busy this school year with numerous volunteering activities.

Seven individuals from the cheer team volunteered a total of 20 hours each (140 total man hours) to teach halftime routines to hundreds of high school honor squad cheerleaders. The routines were then performed by those high school cheerleaders at the Class 1A and 2A state football championship games.

Back in Oskaloosa, 25 spirit squad team members took part in the Oskaloosa High School Homecoming parade for an hour each. Ten student-athletes (for a total of 15 man hours) also helped with Trick Or Treating on the Square during October.

Finally, 16 individuals (for a total of 48 man hours) assisted at Math and Reading Night at Oskaloosa Elementary School.

“We try to give back to our community as much as possible,” Head Coach Abby Reynolds said. “From smaller events in town like walking in the Homecoming parade to one of our bigger events in working with the high school honor squad cheerleaders from around the state, we try to really connect with who we are giving back to and impact them as much as we can. We have a lot of pride in all the volunteer events we do, and we try to have as much fun doing them. Giving back is essential in our culture and what we are trying to do here at WPU.”
