JCCHS grad Chelsey Bell ready to engage in competition cheerleading at Brenau
BY CHARLES PHELPS
When Chelsey Bell looks back on her four years at Jackson County Comprehensive High School, she is going to miss cheering on Friday nights during the Panthers’ football season the most.
She will miss seeing the home crowd get “pumped up” as she cheered from the sidelines and watching the energy level of the student section grow. Ultimately, she’s going to miss cheering in a Panthers’ uniform in general.
Cheerleading has been a year-round sport for Bell. She competed on both the spirit and co-ed competition cheerleading teams. As the next chapter in her life begins, she will only be competing for one of the two squads at the collegiate level.
Bell will write the next chapter of her cheerleading endeavors this fall at Brenau University.
She will be part of the Golden Tigers’ competition cheerleading squad. Her mom attended Brenau and Bell went to different functions such as seeing plays, taking swim and vocal lessons at the college when she was as kid.

“We achieved a three-star rating on our first try because the teachers and staff all worked together for almost a full year to raise our bar to the highest level updating policies and procedures to provide our kids the best possible star to their education,” said Jamie Stevens, owner-operator of Georgia Kids Academy.
