Katelyn (Liz) Stanford - Cheer/Tumble Coach
 I graduated from Water Valley High School in 2017. Currently, I am pursuing my bachelor degree in Chemistry Medical Sciences as a senior at Mississippi College. I started gymnastics when I was 8 year olds and was apart of the school cheer team throughout middle school and High School. One of my favorite parts about cheer was getting to compete each year in competition. We also got to teach elementary students cheer each year to prepare them for middle school cheer. I gained a passion for teaching cheer and gymnastics. Also, I was apart of Oxford Cheer and Tumble where I gained many skills that has prepared me to now teach. I have always had a passion for working with children, so exalt has allowed me two combine my three favorite things: working with children, teaching gymnastics and cheer, and sharing God’s word.
