Rotary Club of Goleta Makes Donation to Dos Pueblos Cheerleader Program

Rotary Club of Goleta program chairman Dick Temple introduced Kristie Plourd, proud mother of Annie Plourd, a member of the cheerleading team at Dos Pueblos High School, at the club's last meeting held at the Frog Bar & Grill Restaurant.

Kristie Plourd explained how times have changed due to new mandates in transportation and availability of uniforms for the cheerleaders. It is now up to the students to raise the funds that enable them to travel to school events, keeping the school spirit high at various activities throughout the year.

The cheer team has grown to include more and more students with visions of becoming our future leaders. The team is a group of hardworking dedicated teenagers, and Annie Plourd explained how their average workout after school can be more than a two-hour practice every day.

She told the Rotary members they work hard because they strive to be the best they can be, not only at Dos Pueblos High School but on a national level competing with other high schools. The cheerleaders gave the Rotary Club a sample of their highly skilled  talented and spirited routine.

The Rotary Club donated more than $600 to the program. Three cheers for the students who work so hard to be the spirited leaders of tomorrow.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
