Reagan Bids Graduating Spirit Seniors Farewell

Submitted By Cari Goodyear

The Reagan High School community would like to bid farewell to it’s Spirit Team seniors who are graduating this month, setting off to seek new opportunities as they go their separate ways. It has been a great pleasure watching their enthusiasm as they entertained the crowds with their dazzling cheer and dance moves throughout their years at Reagan. These special seniors have created lasting memories during many late nights and early morning practices, camp experiences, and the love, sweat, and tears they have shared with one another. In addition to the endless hours spent in the studio and gym, the seniors have been active in school and community organizations including PALS, Student Council, National Honor Society, Class Officer, FCA, and various church programs.

Congratulations to the following 22 seniors and best of luck as they move on to fulfill their next chapter.

Diamond Dancer seniors: Karlie Burrell (Auburn), Danielle Hajjar (Texas Tech), Shelby Karleskint (Oklahoma State), Kathryn Kiolbassa (UT), Alexa Lindberg (BYU), Kyra Kumbalek (OU), Angela Kraus (Univ. of Utah), Amy Opersteny (Texas A&M), Dawson Pressel (OU).
