Beyond that, she is a genuine role model for all of her peers. She is respectful to all, even during disagreements, and she never asks anything of her teammates that she isn’t willing to do herself. In addition, her creative mind and commitment to pursuing originality in pompon have played a large part in choreographing some of the best routines GVSU Pompon has performed to date. She is undeniably talented, an ideal teammate, and a joy to coach. Above all, she is humble and never loses sight of her intentions and goals. Her persistence never ceases. She embodies everything that GVSU stands for, and everything that GVSU Pompon represents.
