ROCKINGHAM — Shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday, more than a dozen vehicles had passed through the Rockingham Middle School traffic circle for a sudsy rinse.

The RMS Rockets cheerleading squad is staging the benefit car wash until 4 p.m. today. Proceeds, said first-year coach Shannon Townsend, will help send seventh- and eighth-grade cheerleaders to camp at RMS Aug. 12 through Aug. 14. Leftovers will help purchase uniforms, she said.

Fifteen members of the 21-member squad were present Saturday to help. The others were at a church event, Townsend said. The goal of improving team spirit was accomplished.

“I want everyone to be able to look at us and say the Rockingham Rockets are truly a family team,” she said.

Cheerleaders helping Saturday included Ja’ikyea Dumas, Carly Batson, Makaylan Nichols, Caroline Walker, Caroline Freeman, Emily Faw, Kaitlyn Skipper, Kelsey Sheffield, Chloe O’Neal, Tiniqua Brown, Jali Blue, Kylie Humber, Kristian Terry, Chasity Davis and Ashley McGuire.

They certainly shouted in unison as many cheerleaders stationed themselves on sidewalks at the intersection of Wall Street and Fayetteville Road to attract motorists’ attention to the car wash. Some turned onto Wall Street towards RMS and many gave a friendly honk in support.
