Athlete of the Week for April Week 3
East Limestone High School
As seniors approach the end of their high school career, it can be tempting to slow down and coast to the finish line. Mention this to our next Athlete of the Week, and she is likely to tell you that the extra push to the finish separates the good from the GREAT! As we near the finish line for this school year and for this year's Athlete of the Year Scholarship program, Danielle Cassady is sprinting all the way. This East Limestone High School senior literally leads the cheers for the Indians, while compiling a rather impressive resume of accomplishments. Danielle is one of the most decorated cheerleaders to have ever attended East Limestone High. Even before she was named Varsity Cheer Captain this year, Danielle was attending camps, performing with the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA) and earning first place in many of their individual routines. With her 4.3 GPA, Danielle been recognized by Who's Who Among American High School Students, and she is in the Limestone County gifted program as well as the National Honor Society of High School Scholars. In 2011, Danielle was awarded the U.S. Achievement Academy National Leadership and Service award. Being recognized nationally is quite an accomplishment, but when it comes to her civic involvement, her sights are set on her local community. She has been a volunteer for the Boys & Girls Club, and she has worked with Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life. Beyond our borders, Danielle worked on a project to send shoes to underprivileged children in Central America. She has also worked with several camps, clean-up efforts and even offers her services as a tutor. Congratulations, Danielle!
