This summer, the Greenville High School cheerleaders attended the National Cheer Association cheerleading camp held at the Gaylord Texan, where cheerleading squads from all over the state come to sharpen their skills and practice their routines. During the camp, the GHS Varsity and Junior Varsity cheerleading squads earned several team awards and All-American nominations.

The Varsity squad received four awards, including Game Day Top Team, Most Improved, Crowd Involvement Award, Stunt Safe Award, as well as winning the spirit stick each day of camp. The JV squad won three awards, including Performance Top Team, Stunt Safe Award, Best Technique, and received the spirit stick each day of camp.
