Melanie Withrow, Varsity Cougar Spiritline member, was recognized at the district’s Governing Board meeting on Tuesday, January 10, for representing Arizona, CGUHS, and the Cougar Spiritline in the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade in Honolulu, Hawaii, December 4-9. Melanie performed with other Varsity Spirit All-Americans in an exclusive performance prior to the opening ceremony of the parade, and then was a part of the parade before thousands of fans lining the streets of Waikiki Beach. The parade theme was "Remembering the Past and Celebrating Our Future" and marked the 81st Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Besides being able to perform for true national heroes, Melanie had the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across that nation and enjoy a memorable trip to the Pearl Harbor Memorial and the USS Missouri Battleship. The Cougars are coached by Katie Kramer, Michelle Estrada, Dominique Estrada, and Brooklyn Nolasco. Visit their webpage at www.cguhsd.org/cgSpiritline.aspx.
