Local high school cheerleaders perform in Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade

Brewer High School is proud to announce that three of its senior cheerleading members, Krymson Brooks, Marlee Jones and Alisha Knighten represented Varsity Spirit, the global leader in cheerleading, dance team and band apparel, camps and competitions, and a division of Varsity Brands, the market leader in team sports, school spirit and achievement recognition, in the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade at the In Honolulu, HI Dec. 4-9.

Cheerleaders and dancers who were invited to perform in the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade are part of a select group of All-Americans identified at Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country. All-Americans are based on superior cheerleading or dance skills as well as leadership 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). Brewer High School attended UCA Camp at Auburn University June 31 through July 3, where they were selected as All-Americans. Only the top 12 percent of the cheerleaders and dancers from Varsity Spirit camps earn the chance to participate in a performance of this caliber.

“We are thrilled that these excellent athletes will have the chance to perform and experience our Special Events in Honolulu, HI,” Bill Seely, President of Varsity Spirit said. “We are honored to provide them a one-of-a-kind opportunity, where they will meet and connect with cheerleaders and dancers from across the country, as well as be a part of a meaningful parade experience that represents our nation’s history.”

Brooks, Knighten and Jones performed with Varsity Spirit All-Americans in an exclusive performance before the parade’s opening ceremony. Then they were a part of the parade before thousands of fans lining the streets of Waikiki Beach. This trip marks the 81st 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 had the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across the nation and enjoy a memorable trip to the Pearl Harbor Memorial and the USS Missouri Battleship.

“It was such an honor to march and cheer in the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade and visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial. I was also excited to meet other cheerleaders from all over the nation and spend time in such a beautiful place as Hawaii,” Jones said.

The Varsity Spirit All-American program is celebrating more than 30 years of honoring camp standouts. For more information, visit Varsity Spirit Pearl Harbor Parade in Hawaii.
