This week's Top Puppies have been nominated by Ms. Altemus:
"I would like to nominate the BHS peer partners of the unified AYC Bedford Bulldogs Adaptive Cheer team for Top Puppy this week! These peer partners have worked since August as part of a unified Spirit team - teaching skills and sharing their love of cheer with a group of athletes with disabilities ranging from age 6 to 18. The peer partners put their partners first - highlighting their abilities and supporting them to shine on the sidelines and receive standing ovations on the competition mat. The team recently represented NH in the Inspiration Division at the American Youth Cheer National Championships in Florida and delivered an outstanding routine! These partners truly inspire me with their leadership. They are not only changing the perceptions of what is possible for athletes with disabilities in the world of cheer, but they are also making dreams come true! Congratulations and many thanks to Raiden Ferreira, Megan Spencer, Emily Spencer, Hannah White, Maddy Oliveira, Ashley Christerson, Brooke Burke, Bryn Schneider and Ellie Tynan."
