Rome, Ga. - In the August 2008 edition of American Cheerleader Magazine, the Shorter College Hawks and Lady Hawks co-ed program has been featured as "the next go-to cheer school." American Cheerleader is the first and largest national teen magazine dedicated to covering all aspects of sideline and competitive cheerleading.

"It's great for the program and the school to be featured in such a prominent national magazine," said head coach Rachel Magness. "This will be one of the finest programs in the country, and I hope that more people are becoming aware of that."

From the article: "A new season signifies a new beginning for any team, but this year the squad from Shorter College in Rome, GA, us facing more exciting changes than usual. A new coach means a new direction for the program, including developing a national competitive reputation and giving the opportunity of more than $250,000 in scholarship money for squad members."

The new program, which will consist of a 20 member co-ed football/competition squad and a 16 member basketball squad, will be funded with 10 full scholarships, to competitive cheerleading athletes per year. They will compete in the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA), which holds its college championship every April in Daytona Beach, Fla., and includes such teams as the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State University.
