Two Western Boone cheerleaders will be spending their Christmas break in London representing their school as a part of the Universal Cheerleaders Association All-American team.
WeBo seniors Devon Eadie and Kylie Hackett will be part of the 2013 London Varsity Tour, where the UCA All-American cheerleaders will perform in the New Year’s Parade on the streets of London.
Hackett has two hopes for her time in London — to see the queen and boy band One Direction.
The students qualified as All-American during cheer camp last summer, along with fellow cheerleader Cory Burdine.
