Norma Ann Addington, Cromona, is one of four new cheerleaders at Pikeville Junior College.
Chosen by vote of the student body, they will replace those of the cheerleading squad who were graduated last year, Dr. A.A. Page, college president, said today. Besides Miss Addington, the group now includes one other sophomore and three freshmen. They will make their first public appearance when the Pikeville Bears meet the Westinghouse Apprentice School basketball team Nov. 18 at Wheelwright.
Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Addington, the young Letcher County woman is 1953 graduate of Fleming- Neon High School, where she was active in the school band, Glee Club, Pep Club, and Tri-Hi-Y, and helped to publish the student paper. Since enrolling at Pikeville in 1953 she has been a member of the college chorus, the staff of the Highlander, the college yearbook, the youth fellowship, and the folk-dancers club. This fall she has been chosen snap shot editor of the Highlander and treasurer of the Pikeville College chapter of the Future Teachers of America.
