As many as you have heard over the last few weeks, Mrs. Jamee Bonnett and Mrs. Kiara Jones were not reinstated as coaches of the Varsity and Competition Cheerleading Squads at Highlands High School, without reason, at the June 19, 2017 school board meeting.
Under these coaches, both programs have thrived and achieved the following accomplishments:
-WPIAL Champions 2014, 2015
-WPIAL Runner Up 2016
-WPIAL 5th Place 2017
-Americheer at PNC Park - 1st Place, full paid Gold bid to US Finals 2017
-UCA Allegheny Regionals at Slippery Rock - 1st Place 2017
-Americheer at Penn Hills High School - 1st Place, Grand Champion, High Point Champion, Macy's Day Parade invite 2017
-US National Champions 2017
-Opened program up to Foreign Exchange Students and modified policies to include foreign exchange students in tryout process
-First time in Highlands High School history competing as a co-ed team
These women have had a positive impact on the lives of their students on the team. They have always had the backs of their students and their families, and now it's our turn to repay the favor. If you support Jamee Bonnett and Kiara Jones please sign the petition to help reinstate them as Varsity and Competition Cheer coaches at Highlands High School. The overwhelming support for these women has already come forth in the short time since the school board vote. This speaks volumes about their leadership, passion for what they do and how genuinely they care for their team. It is our turn to help them.
In addition to setting high expectations for the teams and encouraging them to set goals, and surpass them, they have made personal sacrifices for the better interests of the students throughout the season and dedicated their time and energy to each and every athlete.
We, the undersigned, call on to the Highlands School Board to consider the attached signatures and comments in support of reinstating Jamee Bonnett and Kiara Jones as the Highlands Cheerleading Varsity and Competition coaches for the 2017-2018 season.
