Personal growth is one of Pi Beta Phi’s core values that the women at Indiana Beta are extremely passionate about. Every day we strive for positive growth and improvement. May it be through academics, extracurricular involvement or philanthropic service, the women at this chapter go above and beyond.
On January 20, the Indiana University Crimson All-Girl Cheerleading squad won its sixth Division 1-A UCA College National Cheerleading Championship. This competition is known to be the most prestigious college cheerleading competition in the country. It is held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Last year, the team came in fifth place, which was only the second time in seven years that they didn’t claim the national title. Two of our members, McKenna Renier and Ava Dickmann, were a part of this year’s winning squad.
“My experience being a cheerleader at IU is unlike anything I have experienced before,” said Renier. “I came from a competitive cheerleading background which involved traveling around the country to compete but with an outside organization. That being said, this is the first time I’ve cheered for my school and it is incredible. Representing IU in a sport is something much bigger than myself, it is tradition and honor and something I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
Dickmann has also had a very similar experience with the program. “My experience as an IU Cheerleader has given me the opportunity to grow as not only a cheerleader, but a person more than anything else,” she said. “Cheering at Indiana has taught me so many valuable lessons that pertain to all aspects of life and has given me something to really be proud of.”
Having a strong support system in Pi Phi is something that they both appreciate. “From the very beginning when my sisters learned I was a cheerleader they immediately supported me in any way they could,” said Renier. “The support from everyone was amazing especially when life got very busy with games and school they were always there to help.” Dickmann added, “I am so thankful to be part of such a humbling program and am grateful to have my Pi Phi sisters as an extra support system!”
The women of Indiana Beta could not be prouder of McKenna and Ava. Thank you for putting forth an example for the rest of your sisters.
