Once a Bear always a Bear.

  • Once a Bear–always a Bear. I grew up in Peckville and even though I moved to New Jersey the end of my sophomore year; Blakely was and is dear to my heart. My tale is this: I went to a new regional school in South Jersey that combined two rival schools. When the call went out for cheerleaders, I responded. There were cheerleaders from the two schools and each wanted their style of cheering. In the heat of the argument, the advisor asked if anyone had cheering experience at a different school. Again, I responded. The outcome is that the South Jersey school is carrying on the style of the Blakely Bears Cheerleaders. The bear legacy lives on!!
