The heart of that quote is that opportunity and change can be spearheaded by a few individuals with the potential to have a positive impact on the future. That is happening at Upper Iowa University right now. What began as a grassroots effort by a few students to form a cheerleading squad has grown into a recognized varsity team with potential for growth and opportunity for generations to come thanks to a $1.5 million endowment by alumna Diane Harms, Class of 1973. The Diane Kinkead Harms Cheer Endowment will fund a full-time head coach, as well as operational costs to ensure longevity of the program with the goal of forming a competitive cheer team. An additional $150,000 gift from Harms will provide immediate support to fund program operations.
