September 2, 2014Western Alamance High School
Story by Keith Thomas
Former Western Alamance alumni and dance team member, Erin Gerringer, has a new gig performing for the 2014/2015 Carolina Panthers Top Cat Dance Team. After some grueling tryouts earlier this year, Erin earned a spot on the Top Cat squad where she will perform on the sidelines at home games for the Carolina Panthers football team. She is the daughter of Lisa Clapp and Tim Gerringer.
After graduating from WA in 2010, Erin went on to attend Appalachian State University where she was on the App State Dance Team all four years and Captain her junior and senior years. She also received a degree in Education and is now a full-time 2nd grade teacher at Smithfield Elementary School in Charlotte, NC. Her sister Emily attends and dances for East Carolina University. The girls crafted their dancing abilities from Amber’s House of Dance here in Burlington. If you unable to see Erin perform in person on Sunday, hopefully you can catch a glimpse of her on TV when the Panthers have a home game.
