Halee Reeder, daughter of Chad and Lisa Reeder, is a junior at Nolensville High School and a member of the varsity football cheer team.
She is the backspot for the team.
Reeder started dancing at the age of three and then her mother enrolled her in a tumbling class at age nine. Not only was it fun, but I wanted to keep getting better the older I became,” she said. “I knew cheerleading was in my future.”
This season, the team was given the chance to go to the University of Alabama’s cheer camp.
“We had so much fun spending time together and we were awarded “Overall Champions out of all the teams at camp,” she said. “I have never been so close to a group of my peers nor been around such talented cheerleaders.”
When asked what inspires her to train and compete, she said that because cheerleading is her passion and she wants to continue to train and compete to be her best and use her talent.
“My future goal is to accomplish the most advanced tumbling and stunts while in high school in order to possibly make the cheer squad in college,” she said.
Her biggest role model is her mother, Lisa. She was also a cheerleader and went on to become a nurse, which is the career she plans to pursue.
“She is the most kindhearted person and is willing to help anyone in need,” Reeder said.
NHS cheer coach, Many Derrick said of her, “Haley is the most dedicated cheerleader on the squad. She is always working to get better and always has a smile on her face.”
After graduating next year, she plans to attend college to cheer and pursue a career as a nurse practitioner.
