Anderson County Cheerleader Overcomes The Odds With Spirit

Posted: Updated:

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (Anderson News) -- On Friday nights on the football field at Anderson County High School, you'll find the usual suspects. There will be players, fans, the band and, of course, the cheerleaders. 

Among those waving their pom-poms you will find Jerrica Drury. Drury went to her parents and told them she wanted to be a cheerleader. It shouldn't be surprising that Drury wanted to branch out into other sports. After all, she had played baseball since she was able. 

Drury was born with cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. She struggles to communicate. Jerrica's mother reached out to a special education teacher and the school's cheerleading coach. She was given the title of "Cheer Manager" and she cheers with the team on the sidelines of home football games.

The Anderson News did a profile on Jerrica's spirit that has helped cheer on the Bearcats to two home victories. 

When the paper asked Jerrica her favorite part of being a cheerleader she responded, "The cheers."

Drury was also nominated for the school's homecoming court.
