Rashawnda Currier

Rashawnda Currier isn’t afraid to try new things.

When a friend suggested she try becoming a Lake Region cheerleader, she figured, “Why not?”

“Rashawnda has proven to us in just these few short weeks how far she has come since her first season last year. She has greatly improved on every aspect of cheerleading, is willing to try new things (even if it scares her), and has a great cheerleader spirit and smile,” LR Co-Coaches Ashleigh London and Kelley Tibbetts said. “We are so excited to see how much further she comes this year.”

In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Rashawnda is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing. Recipients receive a specially-designed t-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber.
