Dear Editor: I would like to express my appreciation to The Advocate-Messenger, especially Larry Vaught, Clay Jackson, and Edwin Findley, for their pictoral recognition of local cheerleaders in the Oct. 27 sports section. As a cheerleading coach and youth cheerleading coordinator, I know how hard these athletes work to support their teams and to improve their own skills. Our area not only has a strong group of youth cheerleaders, but extremely talented middle and high school squads.

After three coaches in as many years, the eighth-grade cheerleaders at West Jessamine Middle School are settling into a comfortable routine with their new leader - and it has already shown with success at a summer camp. Kristin Williams took the reins of the program after the previous coach resigned in May. Williams, who cheered in Jessamine County schools before the East-West split, was encouraged to apply by her niece, a West Middle cheerleader. “I have two boys - a 14-year-old and a 1-year-old - so I wasn't really into the girls' stuff,” Williams said.
