“As long as you are passionate about cheer-leading, any university students are welcome to join”, said coach Anna Busby.
The members of this society will be selected through a tryout process.
Candidates will be asked to perform a cheer and dance that will be taught by the active coach.[/wpcol_1half] [wpcol_1half_end id=”” class=”” style=””]
