Olivia Letterle is a cheerleader for Mt. Pulaski High School and loves showing her Hilltoppers’ team spirit. She is a most recent Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) All-American and Varsity IT (Varsity Intelligence Team) Girl 2016-2017 recipient. The Varsity IT is an exclusive team comprised of the best and brightest cheerleaders and dancers across the country. Olivia received valuable experience through this marketing internship by participating in online discussions, working alongside other team members on creative assignments and providing feedback about new and existing programs, products and concepts. Olivia excels as being a leader and that’s why she is the March Senior-of-the-Month.
Aside from cheering, Olivia is a member of the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), yearbook committee, student council, Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering (WYSE) and National Honor Society. She was also selected as Illinois FCCLA state 1st vice president 2016-2017.
Olivia plans to major in biology and nursing with a minor in Spanish. She hopes to receive a degree in pre-medicine.
