If you have ever attended a Saucon Valley football game, you know that the cheerleaders who support the team work very hard to keep school and community spirit high. In addition to their feats of athleticism, the cheerleaders engage with fans and promote the school in a positive light at events outside of games. That’s why we are shining a spotlight on this year’s 11 senior cheerleaders, including Fiona Kramer.
