The ALJ Crusader of the Month for November 2017 is Emily De Lima. The four year varsity cheerleader takes the lead in Crusader Country as the captain of the cheerleading team receiving an athletic leadership award, and an extreme spirit award. She has taken a role in Key Club, Italian Club, Heroes and Cool Kids, and currently Psychology Club.
Emily spends most of her time cheering and working at Diamond Gymnastics as an instructor. When she is not juggling work and cheer you can find her hanging out with friends and getting her homework done. Her favorite thing about ALJ is the close-knit environment. “Between the teachers, faculty, and students everyone knows every one. I will never find myself in the hallway without getting a hello from someone,” Emily said.
After this school year, Emily plans on attending college and choosing a career path that will set her up for a successful future.
