COPPERAS COVE, TX — Two Copperas Cove Junior High cheerleaders are headed to Disney this Thanksgiving.

Emily Kimball and Summer Sweeney are 7th graders, and they are heading to Orlando to cheer during the Disney Thanksgiving Parade.

Only 500 cheerleaders and dancers were chosen nationwide to participate in the parade. Before this opportunity, they were selected as All-American cheerleaders at summer camp.

The school said that only the top 10 percent of cheerleaders earn the chance to march in a holiday parade of this caliber.

Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, Kimball and Sweeney will have the opportunity to meet cheerleaders from across the country and enjoy a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort parks.
