Raeann Richardson is the new head cheerleading coach at McPherson High.
Richardson has a background in both cheer and dance. She served as the Spirit Line Coach at Estrella Foothills HS in Goodyear, Ariz., from 2013-2015.
She attended Northern Arizona University and earned a dual degree in Elementary and Special Education. This past school year she taught at Irving Elementary in Winfield, and she will be teaching special education at McPherson High beginning in the Fall of 2016. She and fiancé Richard Southern, who recently became the new tennis coach at Central Christian College, will be relocating to McPherson after the school year is complete.
Plans are being made for cheer tryouts to occur at MHS later in May. Those plans will include a time for parents and prospective cheerleaders to meet coach Richardson. When plans are finalized, that information will be shared with students and parents.
