JOHNS CREEK, Ga. The cheerleaders in the Johns Creek Jr. Cougar cheer program will be sporting new uniforms this fall.

So, in the spirit of giving back to the community, the Jr. Cougar cheerleaders gathered up many of their old uniforms and sought a school with the same blue and gold colors and Cougar mascot and donate them. Past Jr. Cougar Cheer President Julie Penrose was successful in finding the Crisp County School system, a sister "Cougar" school in Cordele.

"We felt it was time to update the uniforms that we had been using for the past several years with a more modern style," said Sue Schmidlkofer, Jr. Cougar board member.

Penrose reached out to coach Paula Paquette, who was more than a little overwhelmed to accept them.

"You are so kind. We would love to have them and would put them to use at our school or in the community," Paquette said.

In the end, the Jr. Cougar cheerleading program donated more than 50 uniforms to the school. Penrose also delivered close to 100 uniforms from the Chattahoochee High School cheer program. In all, about $8,000 worth of uniforms, warm ups and pom-poms were donated to the school.

Jr. Cougar cheer is a not-for-profit program supporting cheerleaders from fourth- through eighth-grade for the Chattahoochee Jr. Cougar football club. It is affiliated with and serves as the feeder program for Chattahoochee High School district.
