^€umx/i ^'t/u THE VOICE OF WILKES COMMUNITY COLLEGE VOLUME 3—No. 1 WILKESBORO, NORTH CAROLINA OC7TOBER 1, 1972 VLADfB BROACH Otvtain DEBBIE NICHOLS wcc Cheerleaders One af the more elite and prestigious organizations of any school has been conducting try outs this past week. The or ganization, the Wilkes Com munity College Cheerleaders, has been trying to reduce the number of candidates to an ef fective size for a squad. The week of workout was climaxed Tuesday in the Teaching Audi torium when the members of the 1972-73 Wilkes Community College cheerleading squad were announced. According to the Student Handbook the purpose of the cheerleaders “is to promote school spirit, conduct pep ral lies, and support the team at all games,” These conscien tious students have at times al most as difficult a job as the team they support. They are the ones who provide the spark that ignites home crowds and are the ones who add fire to the team at all the away games. The 1972-73 Wilkes Commun ity College Cheerleaders will be led by captain Elaine Broach, a graduate of Wilkes Central, who is currently a sophomore enrolled in the College Trans fer Curriculum. Elaine will be assisted by co-captain Carlla Triplett, also a sophomore in the College Transfer area and a graduate of Wilkes Central. The third member of the squad is Debbie Nichols, a June grad uate of West Wilkes High and another College Transfer stu dent. And finally, the individ ual who made this squad a “first;” William Stevenson, a graduate of Elkin High and currently a sophomore taking College Transfer courses. Wil liam is the first male member of a Wilkes Community College Cheerleading squad. To these students we, the staff of the Cou^rar Cry extend our congratulations. To you, the student, we extend the re quest that you give these dedi cated individuals your support at all pep rallies and games. CARLLA TRIPLETT CoCiptaiB WILLIAM STEVENSON BARBARA H.
