Amirah Sims - SOTW

“Amirah has been rocking all of our basketball games this year! She cheers at games with such a positive attitude and the perfect amount of sassiness! It makes her so much fun to watch! She’s always cheering for the Spartans as loud as she can, and she’s always ready to jump in and help a teammate learn a new cheer or dance! She also isn’t scared to ask questions and is always looking for ways to improve herself! Amirah has been a wonderful addition to our program and we are so excited to watch her grow as a Spartan Cheerleader! Way to go, Amirah!” – Kelsie Webb, Head Coach Varsity Cheerleading

Earning her PR chops at world-renowned brands including Coca-Cola and Jackson Spalding, her expertise in media relations strategy quickly elevates brand reputations at a national scale.

January has been designated Mental Wellness month. It’s a month dedicated to you checking in with yourself and taking the time to improve your life in the areas that you can control. Many people do this in the form of resolutions but all of us can do this by reading and implementing some of the strategies in these Wellness Toolkits.  The Emotional Toolkit is a good place to start. If you need additional help on anything, know that Mr. Sears and others are ready and available to be helpful to you.
