Each year American Elite Booster Club awards a number of scholarships to senior athletes. One in particular honors the memory of Kelli Halterman...
These scholarships are awarded to AE Seniors who have been with the cheer program at least two (2) years and have applied for the annual scholarship. The first scholarships were provided in May of 2009. To date the AEABC has given $15,000.
Scholarship funds are provided by current AE parents through fundraising, private and corporate contributions. The AEABC (501C3) accepts ongoing donations. If you would like to donate please contact Mike Panasiti, Booster Club President.
The Kelli Halterman Scholarship Fund
The American Elite Allstars Booster Club honors the life Kelli Halterman with this scholorship. Kelli was an American Elite athlete who died tragically in an automobile accident in November of 2008. Kelli was a senior in high school who had a vibrant and daring personality that was ready to take on the next phase of her life. Kelli was a participant at our first Cheerleading Worlds. This heartbreaking loss reminds us we should be thankful for our family, friends and our AE community.
Kelli’s mother, Holly Halterman, has attended our banquet every year to honor her very special daughter & present this distinctive award to the selected outgoing senior.
