Cushing’s Kamery Wilson – Character Counts Presented by Cushing Primary Care

By Ryan Stone

The Cushing Character Counts honor goes to senior dance team captain Kamery Wilson. As a senior Wilson is entering her second year on the dance team for Cushing after cheering the first two years.

“I’ve always done competitive cheer and quit in eighth grade due to an injury. So, I started dancing competitively and I also want to try out for Oklahoma State University Pom, so I switched to better prepare for that,” said Wilson.

With it being her senior season Wilson will also take on the role of captain this year.

“As a captain we call all the dances on the sidelines,” said Wilson, “help the coach come up with ideas for shirts and dances. Also coming up with ideas to bring the team closer together and help make final decisions. Also just make sure we’re all on the same page.”

Wilson’s senior season will also come with some challenges this year.

“I’m dealing with a back issue that I may have to have surgery on, at first I had a lot of expectations, but now I’m just anxious to see what happens with my recovery and to see what I can and can’t do,” said Wilson.

You can see in her approach to her injury how much character Wilson has.

“I think character is being a good role model, that anyone can see from the outside that you’re willing to help anyone,” said Wilson. “Overall just a good person that will do anything to help people and just be someone people can come to for anything.”

Outside of the dance team Kamery is also the Secretary of the Student Council with a 3.8 GPA. After high school she plans to attend Oklahoma State to major in nursing and dance on the pom squad. Kamery Wilson is well deserving of the Cushing Character Counts honor.
