“I wasn’t chosen to be a cheerleader,” Amodo
remembers, “but I think God had something better planned.
She got a scholarship to HPU through gymnastics.
She is a hard worker,” said HPU Head Cheer Coach Matt Parkey. “She
doesn’t let anything get in her way.”
In April, the HPU cheerleaders placed first in their division
at the National Cheerleaders Association Chick-fil-A Collegiate
Championship in Daytona Beach, Fla., winning over hundreds
of the top college teams in the country. HPU also took home
first-place trophy in the 2003 championship meet.
As an American Cheerleader magazine “Cheerleader of the
Month,” Amodo has received a $1,000 scholarship from Bonne
Belle and Soffe Sportswear.
She has a lot of heart and dedication,” said Parkey.
