J-HMS Cheerleaders appreciative of community support

On Saturday, June 11, the Jonesboro-Hodge Middle School Cheerleading Squad held its First Annual Bake Sale from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m in the Fred’s Parking Lot. The cheerleaders raised over $1,000.00 in sales and donations to help fund their first-ever overnight stay at the University of Louisiana at Monroe’s (ULM) UCA-sponsored Cheer Camp.

“We know that for some families, it is easy to simply cut a check, however, we wanted ALL of the girls to participate in fundraising. Fundraising not only helps cover costs but promotes a sense of responsibility and builds teamwork. The young ladies also gained customer service skills. A huge thank you to the community for their tremendous support and special thanks to Coach Calahan and Coach Wimberly for orchestrating this successful event!” -Danielle Copeland, Principal
