Mr. KATKO. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the 20th anniversary of
the Central New York Storm Cheerleading All Star Program. The CNY Storm
was founded in 1996 and was the first All Star program in New York
State. The CNY Storm provides a welcoming environment where all ages
and ability levels are invited to come and learn about cheerleading and
The CNY Storm All Star Program is the longest running and most successful program not only in Central New York, the Capital District, and North Country, but in all of New York State. The coaches and staff at CNY Storm are knowledgeable, experienced and nationally recognized. The team is a United States All Star Foundation member gym and all athletes are USASF members.
The CNY Storm Cheerleading Program plays an important role in Central New York, working with young people locally to teach them life skills, teambuilding, character education and the importance of community and the pursuit of academic goals. The team continuously offers community service activities for its team members, along with academic rewards, college scouting opportunities, and a family atmosphere.
Mr. Speaker, I am honored to recognize the CNY Storm Cheerleading All Star Program and congratulate the program on achieving its 20th anniversary. I wish the program continued success for years to come.
