The 2013 Little Mr. and Miss Mountain Lion was crowned on Friday, Sept. 6, at halftime of the Tucker County High School vs. Tygarts Valley football game. For one month, 14 contestants and their TCHS cheerleaders collected pennies for votes and the little boy and girl with the most votes were crowned the title holders.
The TCHS cheerleaders are grateful to all the parents, family members and friends who have sold chances, baked cookies, bought T-shirts, and contributed in any way to make this fundraiser a success for our squad! The funds raised help to purchase uniforms, pay for transportation to away games, meals, and expenses involved in cheer competitions, as well as pay for spirit buses for the students to attend football games, and boys and girls basketball tournament games, spirit items for fans, and meals for teams.
