Raider Cheer Squad marches in Puyallup Rodeo Parade

October 8, 2016

The Washington State Fair begins annually with the Western Rodeo Parade & Cattle Drive.  On September 9th, Pierce College cheerleaders and volunteers showed their school spirit, walking and handing out candy to children along the parade route.  The merry procession included marching bands, cowboys, and equestrian riders.

Linda Buzbee, from Pierce College Marketing and Communications, organized the attendees who marched for the school.  “Pierce will be celebrating 50 years of providing educational opportunities to our communities, and we'll be in full 50th gear for the parade.”    “This is a great opportunity for the college, and our program, to get some really good visibility in the Puyallup community.”

After the parade, the Washington State Fair, commonly known as the Puyallup Fair, was open for free entry with the donation of school supplies to Communities in Schools.
