Thought of the Week:

SPIRIT TEAM TRIVIA:

Meet lovely Ella Bacon… a recent Arizona College graduate.

To our knowledge she is the first Spirit Team Member to join

the USA Armed Forces!

Of course we are proud of ALL of our Charger Girls and their

lives after High School..but her choice is

unique to the Team…. as Ella is deploying to aid the hurricane

victims in Puerto Rico.

It may not be the path that we might take…but we would like to

extend our thanks to Ella for serving

ALL RIGHT ELLA!

HERE WE GO AGAIN!
