Cheerleading scholarships give students something to cheer about
Glee's Sue Sylvester is making cheerleading cool again. Sure, you want to be in the glee club, but secretly, you wouldn't mind being a Cheerio either. In a recent episode of Glee, Sue's funk near nationals almost cost the Cheerios their cheerleading scholarships.
Anyone who has actually been to a National Cheerleaders Association competition knows competitive cheerleading is the real deal. Think the final scene in Bring it On: part gymnastics, part dance, part pep and part attitude. It almost makes you tired just thinking about it, but some guys and gals dedicate all their free time to the sport and are rewarded with cheerleading scholarships and a chance to continue at a collegiate level.
So give me a C-H-E-E-R to say no to L-O-A-N-S and yes to S-C-H-O-L-A-R-S-H-I-P-S!
