Natasha Mitchell was nominated by Shenequel Preston, the parent of a student.

Ms. Mitchell is more than a cheer coach. She is a role model, a support system, a motivator,  and an all-around wonderful person. She gives so much of herself to the cheer program because she wants to see all of her athletes succeed in every area of life. Because of her dedication to the program, Sunset High School's teams have the best gear. She gives unconditionally because she not only wants her athletes to be great cheerleaders, but she wants them to look their best. She builds their confidence in themselves and the team as a whole. 

Ms. Mitchell cares about the academic success of every student in the program and helps them to be great leaders in school and the community. Last year, she took 12 senior cheerleaders on a college tour because she wanted them to understand the importance of higher education. All 12 of those students are enrolled in college for the fall. 

Under her leadership, the 2018-19 squad won 1st place at UIL. The 2019-20 squad has won multiple awards and had eight cheerleaders nominated for All-American. Additionally, the mascot made the All-American team, and the Varsity Squad was invited to perform at the Citrus Bowl in December. 

"There is no one more deserving of this honor than Coach Mitchell. She is truly a LifeChanger," said Preston.

Coach Mitchell is an amazing person, she was my oldest daughter's cheer coach for three years and is now my youngest daughter's coach. She went above and beyond when it came to my oldest daughter. She made sure my daughter was completing and turning in her school assignments. With her help my daughter graduated from Sunset this year, class of 2019. Mrs. Mitchell purchases several things for the team out of her own money and doesn't ask for us parents to pay her back. She has a lot on her plate and is truly deserving to win this award.
