Celesta's Cheerleading

Celesta is cheering at a Syracuse High School basketball game.

(left) Celesta is the 3rd from the left.

Notice the girl in the wheel chair. She has MS and last summer it became her dying wish to become cheerleader. After the district turned her down for a "make a wish," this Syracuse High cheerleading squad found it their pleasure to make Brittany an honorary cheerleader this year.

This is Celesta's 3rd year as a cheerleader. She is going to try out for the Weber State University cheerleading squad next year. Celesta is a junior this year but plans to do early college and cheer (college style) at the same time next year.
