CHESAPEAKE — Chesapeake senior Kennedy Riley signed on May 21 to continue her education this fall at Marshall University as a member of the school’s cheerleading squad.

A substantial scholarship was part of the deal and family, friends and representatives of the MU cheering team were on hand for the ceremony held at the high school.

Being a Marshall cheerleader will open many opportunities for travel and to perform in some of the largest venues in the country and Riley plans to pursue a career in the medical field.
