ADA, MICH. - This week's winner for Meijer Scholar Athlete is Izzy Berry from Forest Hills Central, a senior cheerleader and the second Ranger honored this season.
Izzy is a flyer for the Rangers and holds a 4.1 GPA.
The senior isn't set on a college for the future yet -- but says that even though school has come easy to her her whole life, the friendship and support from cheerleading has rounded her out into a better person and student.
"I have no problem with the academic aspects of classroom life but cheerleading really gives me the confidence and social skills to be able to communicate with people," says Izzy. "Communicate ideas, share ideas so I can combine the academic and the people side of things."
