SPECIAL CHEERLEADER CHANGING PERSPECTIVES AT E.C. CENTRAL


Nataly Gracia is the newest junior varsity cheerleader leading the school spirit this basketball season.  She is an East Chicago Central High School senior, She may have been born with Down Syndrome, but don't tell her she has special needs.

"I have never seen anyone with such a pure spirit and love for their school and peers," said Tereka Boone, E.C. Central cheerleading head coach.  "She radiates, and people gravitate to her.  It's really quite unbelievable."
