‘All In’ for support and service

Jada Nabry

Seneca Valley (SV) Senior Jada Nabry “cheered up” SV’s athletic director by taking the lead on a very special project. As part of her Leadership class, Miss Nabry decided to create pink #SVALLIN T-shirts that she advertised and sold. As cheerleading captain, she also enlisted the help of her squad to promote sales of the shirts. All money raised would go to Cancer Bridges – a nonprofit that supports those impacted by cancer through a variety of free programs and services – in support of SV’s very own Athletic Director Ms. Heather Lewis. In total, Miss Nabry, along with her fellow cheer and dance teammates and additional donations from Raider Crate and the SV Marching Band, was able to donate $6,105 to Cancer Bridges. The check was presented to Ms. Lewis on Nov. 16.

“I just wanted to help a community that many people don’t look out for,” stated Miss Nabry. “What I am most proud of is that the money we were able to raise will help so many people.”

At the game on October 29, SV cheerleaders, the band and the student section, showed their support by donning Miss Nabry’s pink T-shirts.

“I am so proud of Jada, the cheerleaders, dancers the band and all of the teachers, friends and families that bought the shirt and donated,” shared SV cheerleading coach Laura Wise. “I know Heather never wanted to be in the spotlight or for any of this to be about her, but she is bringing a school together for something bigger. As Heather says to us coaches, ‘Be a leader, teacher and mentor.’ She is that to me and to so many.”
