“It’s your job to see; it our job to make you deaf,” Stephanie “Sunnie” Sanderson says to referees about her duty as a cheerleader.
Sunnie has been named a National Cheerleading Association (NCA) All-American cheerleader.
Formerly from Madison, she lives in Frostproof with her parents, Price and Nikki (Arnold) Harris, both formerly of Madison. She is also the daughter of Clint and Charity Sanderson, of Brandon. Clint is also formerly from Madison. She has four brothers, Layne “Bo” Sanderson, Nate Sanderson, Trace McWaters and Justin Studstill.
Maternal grandparents include Jhan Fender, of Lake City, formerly of Madison; Phillip (formerly of Madison) and Marga Arnold; Shannon and Ann Lankford of Ft. White; and Rex and Jeri Heirs of North Carolina.
Paternal grandparents include Ben and Kay Harris of Madison; Billy Joe and Linda Bass of Lee; and Sandy Sanderson of Madison.
Price Harris, Sunnie’s stepfather, is the head football coach at Frostproof High School where she is the loudest cheerleader on the squad.
Sunnie is albino and has been diagnosed with oculocutaneous albinism. She has cheered since she was a youngster, following in her mother, Nikki’s, footsteps. She was one of four cheerleaders from Frostproof Middle High School that made All-American at the NCA camp she attended.
Sunnie will be a junior this year and may perform at Orlando during Dec. 1-3. The performance will be broadcast on ABC on Christmas Day.
