Using the Google Form link below, please give us some ideas of what you would like to see in the (old) downtown area.  Feel free to write as much as you like.  

Thanks so much for participating in this survey!  Maybe your ideas will become a reality in downtown Sylvester!

Competition Cheer Called to Care WCHS Competition Cheerleaders Raise Money for Called to Care

Every year, cheer parents go out into the community asking for donations for raffle items for our annual Last Chance Cheer Classic. Many of our local downtown businesses support this. We sell raffle tickets for a dollar during the Last Chance Competition, and all money raised goes towards a good cause in our local community. We also take money raised for shout-outs, lib offs and jump offs. Shout-outs cost a dollar per shout-out to recognize individual cheerleaders as they take the mat. The lib off is a competition in which different squads compete by holding a lib in an extension for the longest amount of time. The jump-off is a competition in which cheerleaders take turns throwing their best-connected jumps (3 in a row). Past cheerleaders judge the jump-off and they look at height and execution of the jumps. The lib off entree is $10 per team, and the jump-off is $5 per cheerleader. Sue Youngblood began this fundraising tradition many years ago, and we have kept this tradition going because it is a great way to give back to the community. We choose different charities each year and this year we chose “Called to Care.” We are proud to say that we were able to present Ms. Kelly McCord with a check for $360.00.
