PAMAL Top 40 WZRT/RUTLAND helped the RUTLAND HIGH SCHOOL cheerleaders raise money to go to the National Competition in DALLAS. The team needed to meet the goal of $23,000 in order to cover competition fees and travel expenses, and become the first school from VERMONT to ever compete.
Hundreds of people came to send them off at 6:30a, as they left for the airport with a police and fire escort. PD KWAME DANKWA told ALL ACCESS, "It wasn’t all u,s for sure! NANCY GREENWOOD (a.k.a. Team Supermom) asked us to help. Our sponsors and listeners became the main contributors. When we can get the word out about something positive that the community needs to get behind, they will rally to support. The power of radio in this city proves strong."
The competition takes place JANUARY 23rd-25th in DALLAS.
