WOODVILLE— Last week Woodville's Cameron Thomas signed his letter of intent and will attend Tyler County Junior College in the fall where he will continue his cheer career on the Apache cheer squad while majoring in Sonography.
Thomas is a 2018 graduate from Woodville High School. He was the varsity cheer captain this past year for the Woodville Eagles and cheered four years for WHS.
Thomas was named a two-time Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) All-American and National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) All-American individually and was also a two-time state finalist with the cheer squad.
Thomas will be employed by NCA to teach cheer camps to youth, junior high, and high school cheerleaders during the summer. This is a select group Thomas has been assigned to and Thomas is sure to represent Woodville and the Tyler County community well. Thomas was selected by the NCA staffers for his physical skills, outgoing personality as well as areas of leadership and teamwork. Thomas has been chosen to help carry the NCA torch to inspire, encourage, motivate cheerleaders and be a role model for others to become leaders in their own communities.
The NCA is recognized as being one of the most elite cheer companies in the country. NCA was founded in 1948 and has spent the last 70 years teaching not only the technical skills needed for the activity of cheerleading, but also the teamwork, values, and dedication involved in this activity as an ambassador for schools. NCA believes in the impact of game day cheerleading as well as the importance of being a positive and influential group on campuses in our area.
