Cotulla High School Varsity Cheerleaders to perform in the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade in Honolulu, Hawaii
Congratulations to Kayli Galindo, Kristnee Romero, and Quiana Mendez, as they will represent Cotulla High School at the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade in Honolulu, Hawaii from December 4-8, 2021.
They will join 600 high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the country that will represent the camp brands of Varsity Spirit.
Kayli, Kristnee, and Quiana are invited to perform as part of a select group of cheerleaders and dancers chosen as All-Americans during Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country. All- Americans are selected via tryout based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills at camps operated by Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA), Universal Dance Association (UDA), National Cheerleaders Association (NCA), National Dance Alliance (NDA), United Spirit Association (USA) or Urban Cheerleading Experience (UCE). Only the top 10% of the cheerleaders and dancers from Varsity Spirit camps earn the chance to march in a holiday parade of this caliber.
Kayli, Kristnee, and Quiana will perform with the Varsity Spirit All-Americans in an exclusive performance prior to the opening ceremony of the parade and then be a part of the parade before thousands of fans lining the streets of Waikiki Beach. This trip marks the 80th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The parade theme is "remembering the past and celebrating our future." We honor our veterans and their families while recognizing that once bitter enemies can become loyal friends and allies.
Besides being able to perform for true national heroes, athletes will have the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across that nation and enjoy a memorable trip to the Pearl Harbor Memorial and the USS Missouri Battleship.
