Greyhound cheerleaders attend and cheer for all home games of the Greyhound and Lady Greyhound basketball teams. The squad is selected each spring for the upcoming school year through a tryout process. Men and women are welcome to go through the process by submitting an application and a letter of recommendation from their high school coach. Each applicant will complete an interview with the MACC cheerleader sponsor and will demonstrate required cheering abilities in front of a panel of judges selected by the sponsor. A total of eight scholarships are awarded; however, more than eight cheerleaders may be selected through the tryout process.
The Cheerleader Award is made available to students and is awarded on a competitive basis. The number and amount of individual awards may vary each semester, ranging from $250 – $1,000, and will be determined by the needs of the Cheerleading squad; a maximum of $8,000 per semester may be awarded to all recipients. This award is applied to educational expenses charged at MACC, including fees, tuition, housing, meal plan, and/or books and supplies. Award recipients must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester. The award is renewable for the one semester if a cumulative 2.0-grade point average is maintained, 12 credit hours are completed, and other designated criteria are satisfied. The award will be pro-rated if the recipient fails to abide by the rules and regulations of the scholarship or the College. Student recipients of this award may reapply in subsequent years.
