Hard worker. This is how cheerleading coach Lindsey Abbott describes this weeks senior athlete Megan Heacock. She balances several difficult school activities and manages to put her best effort into all of them, said Abbott. Megan is involved in football and basketball cheerleading, NHS, business club, ambassador club, and runs indoor and outdoor track.

Megan has been a cheerleader almost all of her life. She started taking dance classes when she was three-years-old and became a mini-Muskie cheerleader in the sixth grade. My favorite memory of being a cheerleader at John Glenn is last year cheering at the Convo. That was a memory Ill never forget.

Cheerleading is not just about being involved with the football or basketball team and cheering on the sidelines at games. Megan argues, My favorite thing about being a cheerleader is the relationships you make with the other girls and players youre cheering for.

Not only was this peppy senior a member of the cheerleading squad, but she was also a leader. Many of the underclassman looked up to her in this role. There were several times when the underclassmen would wait for Megans response before making their own decisions, said Abbott.

As far as her future goes, Megan plans to attend either Mount Union or Ohio Wesleyan and major in early childhood education, and eventually go onto grad school.

Megan is what most John Glenn students strive to be. She is passionate, high-achieving, and motivated. Her parents should be proud, shares coach Abbott of her senior cheerleader.
