Makenna Isley Wins Statewide Cheer Pros Scholarship!

Amanda Urena, Staff Writer


On January 20, 2018, one of our star Huskies was recognized for her academic achievement! Makenna Isley, a senior here at Chino Hills High School, won a statewide $500 scholarship from the Cheer Pros Organization. Her day began like any other competition day: she rose early to get ready for a drive to Pasadena Civic Center and a day full of cheering with her teammates. While she had applied for the scholarship, the last thing Makenna expected was to garner such a massive honor. After a long day of cheer routines and concluding ceremonies, Makenna was shocked when she heard her name called. “It was very surreal,” she said, “I didn’t realize I had really won until they handed me the big check and I got to hold it.” That big check held represented $500 awarded to Ms. Isley for her hard work in academics. She has managed to maintain a 4.5 GPA through her high school career while still being a committed cheerleader, visible in the stands of numerous Husky sporting events. When I asked her how she managed to balance these two, she gave a very enlightening answer: “Time management! I try to do homework ahead of time if I can, and I study two to three days before a test because I retain the information better that way.” Huskies can only hope to emulate the kind of work ethic Makenna has. She hopes her hard work will get her into UC San Diego, where she wants to major in Biology. This scholarship no doubt speaks to her ability to succeed academically; something she should be very proud of.
