A spaghetti dinner that will support the Terrier cheerleading squad is planned for Saturday, Dec. 17 in conjunction with the Terriers’ first home basketball game. The dinner will help pay for the squad’s uniforms and warm-ups, according to cheerleading coach Shawna Christofferson.
“We’re having to start from the ground up,” Christofferson said of the program, which is in its second year, after at least a decade-long hiatus.
Last year the Terrier cheerleading program returned to the high school with three cheerleaders – one senior and two junior high students. This year six high school girls have signed on to help cheer on the Terrier basketball games. This year’s cheerleaders are: Courtney Ban, Breanna Cole, Exelee Lacquement, Dakotah Luedtke, Kylie Helmuth and Katie Ferguson.
Proceeds from the dinner will be used to purchase skirts and tops for the cheerleading uniforms and windbreaker jackets and pants for the girls’ warm-up suits.
The $5 a plate benefit dinner will begin at 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17 at the Bolin multipurpose room and is expected to continue through the evening until the conclusion of the ball games. A silent auction will also be held with a variety of donated items on display from local businesses and from those in surrounding communities.
The Terrier cheerleading squad will also have a booth in the lobby of the THS gymnasium offering t-shirts for $15.
