Becoming a cheerleader is anything but a walk in the park, but junior Jordan Hagemann has shown what it takes to prove she’s in it for the long run.

According to her friends and teachers, there is much more to Jordan’s story than meets the eye.

During the rigorous selection process and camps with hours of practice, Hagemann made her dream spot on varsity just this year. She has been working hard to hold her spot and to contribute to the team the best that she can.

Through her entire journey she’s always had her friends, family, and other cheerleaders by her side supporting her. One friend that stands out the most in Jordan’s life is Coach King, who has been by her side since day one.

“Jordan came in her freshman year to do the tryout along with the other 8th graders and she did everything the other cheerleaders had to do” King said. “Jordan had the same expectations as everyone else trying out. There’s not one thing that is different for her.”

Hagemann is also very involved outside of school being the Ambassador of the Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas, she will have a team walking with her during the Buddy Walk at Reunion ranch on Oct. 23 at noon.

Anyone who would like to go walk with Hagemann  and support DSA of Central Texas can swing by AE-105 to see King for details.
