Three students from Ozark Catholic Academy in Tontitown  — Gabbi Dickinson, Bree McAfee and Annalise Stacey  — were among more than 600 high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the country represented the camp brands of Varsity Spirit in the Varsity Spirit Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade in Honolulu, Hawaii, Dec. 4-8. They were among a select group of cheerleaders and dancers chosen as All-Americans during Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country.

Dickinson, McAfee and Stacey performed with the Varsity Spirit All-Americans in an exclusive performance prior to the opening ceremony of the parade and then as part of the parade before thousands of fans lining the streets of Waikiki Beach. With the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the parade theme was "Remembering the past and celebrating our future.”
