By virtue of their performance at a UCA camp in Lindsborg, three of TMP's cheerleaders qualified to perform in one of the oldest Thanksgiving Day parades in the country.

Planning to participate in the 63rd annual H-E- Holiday Parade in Houston, Texas, as All-American cheerleaders are juniors Mikaela Flax and Samantha Whitmer and sophomore Macie Stoecklein.

Flax and Whitmer also qualified to perform in London in January but probably will defer.

All-Americans were selected via tryout based on the superior cheerleading or dance skills they showed at camp.  Only the top 12 percent of the cheerleaders and dancers who attended varsity camps have earned the chance to march in a holiday parade of this caliber.
