For 10 years now, Joslyn has been a Mustang cheerleader, and for four years, she has been a varsity cheerleader. Joslyn is a main base, tumbler, and a huge asset to the team. She has received the academic athlete award and a varsity letter three( and soon to be four) years in a row.

When asked what her favorite memory as a cheerleader was, she responded, ¨Probably whenever we came to the high school as eighth graders, who had just made the varsity team, to help with Special Olympics with our new high school team.΅

Other than cheerleading, Joslyn also helps teach a tumbling class to younger kids, participates in FFA, International Club, and is an NHS officer as well as a Character Ed leader. She does all this while taking multiple advanced classes. With such a busy schedule, Joslyn doesn´t have much time for anything else other than watching Youtube and sleeping.

Joslyn´s favorite year of high school was freshman year because of the people she spent it with and her overall experience. But this year, she is looking forward to prom and especially graduation. After high school, she plans to attend Mizzou and participate in the journalism program, pursuing a career in that field. While attending Mizzou, Joslyn hopes to also continue her cheerleading career.
