By Lillian Bowe

PNT staff writer

Morgan Foster of San Jon joined the Eastern New Mexico University spirit squad in the fall semester of 2010. She became the team captain this year.

Being the leader of the squad has posed many challenges, but for Foster the biggest challenge was trying to be the best she could be for her teammates.

When she graduates in May, Foster plans on attending graduate school to become a speech-language pathologist.
