Cheerleader from Jeffersonville High School wins Athlete of the Month


ATHLETE OF THE MONTH FOR FEBRUARY IS MCKENA ALFORD. MCKENA IS A CHEERLEADER AT JEFFERSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL IN SOUTHERN INDIANA. MORE AND MORE, CHEERING IS BEING RECOGNIZED AS AN ATHLETIC ENDEAVOUR AND A SPORT. COMPETITIONS DEMAND ATHLETICISM. AND AN ADDED DIMENSION THAT SETS THEM APART, THEY ARE MUCH MORE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE IMAGE OF THEIR SCHOOLS, AS WELL AS BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR ATMOSPHERE AND EXCITEMENT. MCKENA DOES ALL THOSE THINGS VERY WELL. SHE’S ALSO A VARSITY BASEBALL MANAGER, IN THE NATIONAL HONORS SOCIETY, THE ANCHOR CLUB, ON THE STUDENT COUNCIL, A CLA OFFICER, AND A PART OF THE FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH YOUTH GROUP. MCKENA ALFORD IS THE PENN STATION ATHLETE OF THE MONTH FOR FEBRUARY ON WLKY. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE PENN STATION ATHLETE OF THE MONTH, MCKENA ALFORD!>>GO, GO, BIG RED, GO!>>GO!>>GO!>>BIG!>>BIG!>>READ!>>RED! FRED WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST REACTION? IT WAS SURPRISING, ESPECIALLY BEING A CHEERLEADER. MOST PEOPLE DON’T THINK OF CHEERLEADING AS A SPORT, SO IT WAS REALLY GRATIFYING. G IS ONE OF THE BEST ROLE MODELS I HAVE. SHE IS AN EXCELLENT CAPTAIN. SHE HELPS LEAD HER TEAM AND THE STUDENT SECTION AT EVERY GAME. I AM SO PLEASED SHE WAS NOMINATED. FRED THIS WAS A LITTLE OUT OF THE BOX, WHICH I THINK IS A REALLY COOL THING.>>I THINK IT IS VERY COOL. LIKE WE SAY EVERY TIME, WHEN WE ARE MEETING THE STUDENTS AND ATHLETES, IT IS AMAZING HOW POISED THEY ARE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, WHICH STILL MAKES ME NERVOUS. [LAUGHTER]>>BUT IT IS INCREDIBLE TO MEET ALL THE STUDENTS, AND MCKENA IS A GREAT CHOICE. FRED:MCKEN ALFORD, THE PENN STATION ATHLETE OF THE MONTH ON WLKY!
