HEAD COACH of 4th GRADE CHEER TEAM
Dawn Hardman
My name is Dawn Hardman. When I was younger I was a cheerleader for Princeton High School. I have always loved to cheer and love that I can pass on the tradition to others by coaching. I have 2 daughters that cheer for the Little Vikes and have been apart of the organization since it started.  I have coached my oldest daughters squad since she was in first grade with my good friend Carmen White and will continue to do so until she is at PCMS.  Being a cheerleader is more than dressing in cute uniforms, it's about teaching our children to be positive, upbeat and caring young people in our community!! Go Vikes!
