Lynetria Johnson, coach for the Mabee Red Shield Boys & Girls Club cheer squad falls into a small category of volunteers: no one talked her into volunteering and she’s not doing it just for her child. “I have a love for cheerleading and I wanted to do it,” Lynetria said. Her five-year-old son Brayden is on the Bulldog’s Mighty Mite basketball team, so she is “already at some of the games.”
