We previously discussed how to follow the "Maddie Model"
and stand out from other cheerleaders as a role model and inspiration. 16 All Star cheerleaders proved that true; 10 were announced as Cheer Channel's 'Superstars of the All-Stars' and 6 were runners up. Now, cheerleading apparel company Chassé® announced that it is awarding scholarships to several of those cheerleaders.
This news arrives shortly after Chassé® announced its endorsement deals with recognized cheerleaders Maddie Gardner
and Elle Smith
Check out the official press release below. We are so excited for these All Stars and hope this inspires other cheerleaders to follow in their footsteps.
