From the Sideline

“Brittany Porter has been on the ARHS cheerleading team for three years. She shows outstanding leadership along with her two other captains by encouraging others on her team and leading by example. Brittany is the first to give feedback and to come up with different skills and ideas that help the team – both on the sideline and at competitions. Always having a smile on her face, she is the epitome of spirit for her team and all others at ARHS. In this season, Brittany has helped two ARHS cheerleading teams qualify for the state championships in February 2020.
