Bringing cheer to cheerleading

Freshman Brooklyn Rodgers leads a chant Oct. 8 at Minico High School in Rupert. Brooklyn's mother, Sarah Rodgers, said she's overjoyed to see how much the other girls include Brooklyn with the team. 'This is one thing that I feel she is able to fulfill doing that is “normal”, whatever normal may be,' Rodgers says. 'Normal to us is just a setting on the washing machine, but this is a normal thing that people do. To see the girls include her and accept her for who she is, it's really amazing.'
