Jaelin Williamson is a senior at Walter Hines Page High School in Greensboro, N.C. When she is not making academic noise in the classroom, she is tearing thing up while cheering.

At school, she is a member of the student council, National Honor Society, National Math Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society, and a member of the Greensboro Junior Guild. Williamson is also a captain of her varsity cheer squad and runs hurdles and relays for the Page Pirates track team. She is also a member of a All Star Cheering squad. One could guess that she is a very busy girl.

Williamson has cheered for 11 years. She began All Star Cheer at the agge of eight, after leaving gymnastics she went to the Greensboro Allstars and then moved on to Cheer Extreme after enrolling in high school. All Stars is a combination of acro tumbling, dance, stunting, pyramids and jumps all in a two minunte/30 second routine, where judges score each team on difficulty, skills, creativity and technique.

She has topped off her brillant career with becoming a all-star cheerleader. She is currently competing in her final year in all-stars on Cheer Extreme Senior Elite Large Level 5 Team. Being a member of this squad doesn’t come without hardwork or dedication. They placed second in the world a couple of years ago and plan on winning it all this year.

Williamson was a memnber of the 2014 Senior Elite team that placed 2nd in the Cheer Worlds. That year her team also won the Champions League in Los Angeles where we filmed a movie and donated $10,000 to Brenner Children’s Hospital. She will be heading back to Orlando in April to go for the Gold at the Cheer World’s Championship at Disney’s ESPN World of Sports.

Williamson credits her success with being blessed with a great supporting cast. “I have had two coaches who have impacted my life in the areas of teaching me discipline and making me believe that hard work does pay off. Anna Love Logan of the Greensboro Allstars and Courtney Smith-Pope with Cheer Extreme Kernersville have given so much of their time to me, so that I could be my very best. My mom, Tara McPhail has also impacted my life by always reminding me that anything is possible and to always believe in myself. With this support, I do not know where I would be,” she says.

Her biggest inspirations are her teammates. Williamson says watching them push themselves to the limit and struggling with certain skills and never giving up encourages her to do her best by pushing herself to the limit. Moving forward, Williamson has plans to attend college in North Carolina at UNC-Charlotte or UNC-Chapel Hill and study Exercise Science/Kinesiology and become a Physical Therapist.
