Cheerleaders Coach Steps Down After 8 Years

PURPLE PRIDE: Beverly Robinson is anxious to spend more with her nieces MacKayla, MacKenna and MacKinleigh, pictured here in the Claxton Gym, the Lions home prior to the Sheaffer Center.WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  Prayer is said to change things. Sometimes it is the situation, but often it changes the person who does the praying.

Having served in the district offices of her beloved home state’s youth ministries department, Beverly Robinson followed the Lord’s leading south of the Red River into Texas. Five years into a fruitful ministry career at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, very familiar with the book, The Prayer of Jabez, she was about to apply one of the book’s truths.

Prayer accomplishes mighty things,” Ms. Robinson said recently. “And many times it will stretch us out of our comfort zones for something new.

As SAGU was considering to do away with its cheerleading program “…the Athletic Director and a couple of young ladies who wanted to be cheerleaders approached me and asked if I would be willing to take it,” Robinson said of the head coach position.

Eight years later the congenial Robinson, whose position as Director of Career Services helps provide future directives for students, has completed an outstanding era as Southwestern’s head Cheer Coach. Her heart for guiding young adults beyond their comfort zones and into new discoveries had led her to experience the same!

WE'VE GOT SPIRIT! Cheer Team Head Coach Beverly Robinson and a group of her cheerleaders in 2010.As a result, scores of cheerleaders have provided wholesome vivacity, school spirit and encouragement for thousands of fans and athletes who identify with the SAGU Lions. Blessed with a passion for mentoring, hospitality and equipping, the personable Ms. Robinson has completed a wonderful season of servant leadership doing something she had never tried before.

In eight years she has been responsible for an exemplary group of spirited young women, whose dedication has seen them train and perform from August through March for numerous teams in a seemingly unending schedule of games and events!

Her tiresome labor and that of her cheerleaders has been accomplished with an amazing attitude, sparkle and a 100-watt smile.

Now she will hand the reins to someone else, while taking advantage of the opportunity to do some things she hasn’t had enough time for in recent years.
