The Story of Spirit Revolution Stevenson's Spirit Revolution was created on the bus ride back from the State Cheerleading Competition in March of 1987. It's creators were Corey Friedl, the Varsity Cheerleading Coach, and Susan Petschow, the Varsity Patriette Coach. It was their desire to establish a group of "Spirit Leaders" who would revolutionize school spirit at SHS. Mrs. Friedl and Mrs. Petschow, along with some visionary parents, such as Ann Cyrus, Patti Feldstein, Mindy Frost and Arlene Kabb, formed "Spirit Revolution" which is comprised of all levels of cheerleaders, poms, coaches and parent supporters. All obstacles, which could cause friction and/or competition between the two groups, were removed. They started doing everything together; practice, fund-raising, games, special events, community service... everything! Without competition for practice space, money and recognition, they were able to fully appreciate each others' differences and work together to support the team's at Stevenson. This elevated the poms and cheers to a new level of respect from their peers and from the school administration. "Spirit Revolution" has created an automatic support group for all of it's members. The cheerleaders stay in the stands to watch the poms perform at half time. The poms stay in the stands during the games and cheer with the cheerleaders to support the teams. They travel together to away games. They rally around each other at competition time. The wonderful thing is that their parents do the same! Now, over twenty years later, these athletes have no idea what it is like to be anything other than what they are... Spirit Leaders. They do not think of themselves as different, and they cannot comprehend that at many other schools, cheerleaders and poms do not get along.
