Admirable, commendable and praiseworthy are a few words I use to describe the Costa Mesa High School cheerleaders and their coach.
Along with keeping up good grades and their personal lives, these young ladies always find time for community involvement.
Coach Kori Johnson is the driving force behind this noteworthy squad. I asked her to explain the type of standards the cheerleaders are held to:
"All the girls are held to high standards and are expected to maintain and achieve high academics (3.0 or higher), take challenging classes (Honors and Advanced Placement), be role models on campus, never get in trouble at school, be on time and present in classes, be involved in extracurricular activities besides cheer, help in the community, be role models to younger girls in communities, help out at community events, cheer and or perform at community events, maintain a professional appearance, live a healthy lifestyle, work hard to maintain and better our teams skills and performances."
