Cheerleaders from Galvez Middle School attended the Universal Cheerleaders Association camp in June.

The squad learned many cheers, dances and new stunts for the 2014-2015 school year, and held a performance at the camp’s “show-off” event, school officials said in a news release.

For years, Varsity and UCA have teamed up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to support its mission of finding cures for children with cancer and other illnesses. This year at the show-off, the cheerleaders asked spectators to donate money to St. Jude in honor of fellow cheerleader Breanna Bercegeay. The squad raised more than $400.
