Beyond the Sidelines: A Passion for Cheer & Volunteering

This month’s Beyond the Sidelines story is featuring S! student Avery Collazo. Avery is a Klein Collins cheerleader and has been training with Coach Ashley and Sideline Spirit for nine years. Avery loves Sideline Spirit and Coach Ashley for being a positive role model in her life, and for teaching her to be a positive role model to others, on and off the field.

Avery also has a passion for volunteering and is a member of Legacy League. Legacy League is a Mother/daughter volunteer organization that strives to improve the quality of life within the Klein community through volunteer work. Most of Avery’s volunteer work is performed at the Abandon Animal Rescue. The Abandon Animal Rescue is a no kill animal shelter that provides care and adoption for animals that do not have a home of their own. Avery spends many days during her summer and afternoons during the school year volunteering at the shelter and has over 45 hours this year.

Avery continues her volunteer work at home by fostering kittens that are not old enough or healthy enough to live with the other cats at the shelter.

When Avery is not cheering or volunteering you might find her at the stable! She loves riding horses and spending time with her friends at Northside Christian Church.
