One of my favorite memories is Friday night football games. As a cheerleader, and also a sister of two players, I got to experience life as a spectator and an athlete for nearly 10 years. CCA was such a tight-knit community—especially when it came to football, and being able to spend those Fall nights with my family and close friends was really special.
One more fun memory was terrorizing Chris Spittal for his birthday every year. The cheer squad would come up with a really elaborate plan to celebrate his special day, and it never failed to make him both happy and stressed at the same time. I got in trouble one year for bouncing a basketball in the hallway during class, but it was okay because it was just a part of the plan for Chris (I have no regrets Mrs. Wilson!).
