Thurston Spirit Squad: 'Go out there and be brave, and just stand up for your school'
The students who participate stand a little taller.

When the Spirit Squad performs at Thurston High School, everyone is on their feet.

Students are singing along, clapping their hands. Labels dissapear, and the school becomes one.

The Spirit Squad started 4 years ago when a student, Heidi Brown, decided to put it together for her senior project.

The team is made up of special needs students coached by student leaders.

Meet the Spirit Squad #LiveOnKMTR Thursday, January 29, at 5:30, 6:30 or 11 p.m.
