ALL-AMERICAN CHEERLEADER: Brittney Dudra, a freshman at Melbourne High School, participated in the B2 Cheerleading Competition held at the Melbourne High School in the beginning of June 2015. Brittney, the 14 year old daughter of Gary and Ginny Dudra, along with three other girls, was selected as an All-American Cheerleader at the competition. By being selected an All-American Cheerleader, Dudra was asked to perform at the 2016 Liberty Bowl, and was in the New Year’s Day Parade on Beale Street in Memphis, TN. Dudra held a raffle for a $200 gift card to help raise money for expenses for her trip. She has been cheering since seventh grade. Photos/Submitted
