Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Three of Clarksville Academy’s Varsity Cheerleaders, Morgan Wilson, Day Weaver, and Mimi Strong, were a part of an elite group of cheerleaders that performed in the 89th annual 2015 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  This was an amazing opportunity for these cheerleaders as they performed in a nationally televised performance LIVE on NBC in one of the most celebrated parades in the world.   These young ladies spent the week before Thanksgiving in New York City sightseeing and rehearsing for their performance on Thanksgiving Day. This is the 5th year CA has been represented in this exclusive event.  Approximately 500 cheerleaders nationwide are selected based on their skill, talent, and cheer expertise.  Please join us in celebrating this wonderful accomplishment for these young ladies.
