Katelyn Kleiboer is an 8th grader at Mabel-Canton and is in her 2nd year of cheerleading. She is a captain this year and she cheers for football and both boys and girls basketball on her Varsity Cheer squad, as well as working hard with her Competitive Cheer Squad (Glitter Athletics) as a base and a flyer. She is a talented athlete that has an energetic personality, and she sets a good example as a role model for younger girls. Katelyn has qualified and was an All American Nominee two years in a row at NCA Camp and is working hard each year to make the NCA All American Team. She loves to dance and perform, Cheerleading is a daily part of her life. She would love to be in the Macy's Day Parade in New York with the All American team someday. (Cheer Goals!)
 
Katelyn is also very active in many other clubs and activities as well. She was a main character in the 3 Act play in November, and plans to participate in the Spring Production.  She is also on the Yearbook Staff (also 2nd year for this and for Play) as Editor and is active in Luther League and went on a Mission trip with her church this past June. She is in 4H and will be showing horses at the fair in July as well as completing many other projects and doing volunteer work at the local Humane Society. 
 
She is in Band and Choir--loves to play her saxophone and sang in the choir recently for the Veteran's Day program. Someday she hopes to either be a Band or History teacher, she has had great role models in her life in these positions, and she strives to live up to those standards. 
 
Yes--Katelyn is my daughter, and so she gets her coach to be extra hard on her here at school, and at home. She doesn't just take her cheer shoes off at the door, she is always thinking about new things to try and how to make a stunt better/safer.  She loves the sideline cheer as well as competitive cheer and works hard to make others see it as a sport. She is a well rounded athlete that can move from one position to the other (Flyer/base/tumbler). 
 
Katie is also a good student. She made the "90 Club" this year, maintains a high B Average, and is consistently on the honor roll. I think she is always harder on herself than she needs to be, but she is a perfectionist and strives to work hard and try hard. She makes me very proud.
