The Ambitions Cheerleading Titans Summer Camp was held at the Louisville Coliseum June 17-28 with fifteen girls ages 5 to 15 years old. Asia Eichelberger is the founder, administrator and instructor of Ambitions Cheerleading Titans. Friends of Dean Park, Inc. helped to sponsor, promote and support all aspects of the camp. The camp taught girls the fundamentals of cheerleading along with lessons about attitude, leadership, and service. Positive youth development was stressed in all phases of this program. All cheerleaders were held accountable for their academic performance and their commitment to sportsmanship and community service. Arts and crafts were enjoyed by the girls.

Asia stated, “This was the first summer cheer camp for Ambitions Cheerleading Titans. The class was challenging but exciting and I would love to have a repeat during the holiday season and during the next summer vacation. This camp gave me experience for my major which is Sports and Recreational Administration as a junior at Ole Miss. I am grateful to the community and all who sponsored a girl, volunteered or donated snacks. It was a full day camp from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The girls enjoyed spending part of the day at the new playground at Ivy Park. They especially enjoyed the Splash Pad on those hot days.”

Asia and the cheerleaders express gratitude to the following providers of sponsorships for some of the girls for the cheer camp: The Jewel Shoppe, Inc.(Mary Snow, co-owner), Beck’s Funeral Home (Robert Beck, Owner), Hampton & Associates Law Office (Atty, Linda Hampton), Joe Keith & Marsha Partridge, Jr. (Agency Manager of Mississippi Farm Bureau), Julie Cunningham (Chancery Clerk of Winston County), Darlene Bane (Winston County Tax Assessor), Louisville Publishing Company (Joseph McCain, owner), Kim Ming (Circuit Court Clerk of Winston County), Annie Ruth Robbins, Dianne Floyd of Kids World Day Care, Supervisor Ralph Goss of District 4, The CATO Corporation (Danyell Logan, Store Manager), Melvin and Mattie Davis.
