EAST CENTRAL -- It’s not often one learns of scholarship opportunities for competitive cheer, but Baylor University in Waco recently made an offer to East Central senior Kayla Gregg, and the four-year varsity cheerleader is ready to continue her competitive ways as a member of the Baylor acrobatics and tumbling team.

Kayla has been involved in gymnastics since she was 5, but took her passion to a new level when she became a freshman at East Central High School and joined the cheerleading team. While many think of the cheerleading squad only in terms of its time spent mustering support from the sidelines, there is another side to the team, and it is in the world of competitive cheering. The squad from East Central is actually quite good, and is preparing to make a run at a third national title.

“It’s such a big thrill for me when I hit my stunts, when I’m able to help my team win,” she said.

Kayla, who plans to study nursing at Baylor, said the school was always at the top of her list, and she was thrilled when the offer came her way. The coaches at Baylor discovered Kayla when she traveled to Waco to participate in a camp session.

She said she is looking forward to the “college experience,” and is eager to meet new people, as she gets a feel for the “real world.”

“I’m super excited,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to school, and to the competition.”

Still, the senior is aware of what she will be leaving behind, and said she would miss her family and friends.

“I’ll miss my mom a lot,” she said, “and the country, small-town feel we have here.”
