He's got so much character... so much that there is a book being published 
with the funny things he has said!  Be looking for it!

If you think this girl is beautiful, you should see her 
dance.


Jenalee was not only on the pom-line at UofA, she was also awarded cheerleader of the week earlier this year.  Her passion for dance is evident when she is in front of people and immediately draws you in.  




Jenalee is headed to big city living, and all of the amazing dance opportunities those cities offer.  I can't wait to follow her story ...
Congratulations on graduating Jenalee!
