Philosophy of Cheerleading
As a cheerleader, you pledge to support the different athletic teams within our school. You will strive to improve student morale, boost team spirit, and help JKHS achieve the most worthwhile objectives.
The major goal of the #DevastatingDiva cheer squad is to encourage positive crowd and student body involvement.

Cheerleading is an activity that comes under the jurisdiction of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association in two areas – eligibility and safety guidelines. All information pertaining to cheerleading should be found in the Handbook. Spirit rulebooks are sent to head varsity coaches. Cheerleaders, both junior varsity and varsity, must have their eligibility certified in the same manner as other interscholastic athletes. In addition, the Board of Directors has approved the National Federation of State High School Associations Spirit Rules. Rules have been recommended to each local educational agency for implementation and adoption.
