North Clarendon Mill River Union High School juniors Rachel Montross and Leslie Hixon have been selected to perform with Spirit of America Productions at the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The students will spend a week in New York City preparing for a cheer routine comprised of 600 cheerleaders from around the United States. The event will be broadcast nationwide on television.
The young women, varsity cheerleaders for MRU, also cheer on Peak Performance's Senior All-Star Team. Both receive gymnastic instruction at Cobra Gymnastics and the Dance Center.
Montross takes gymnastic classes at Head of Heels and Hixon takes dance lessons at Grand Performance All About Dance.
