Troy Larson, Director of Athletics, announced today that Kara Chapman will become the new Head Cheer Coach for Iowa Lakes Community College.
Chapman is originally from Iowa City, but has been living in Council Bluffs for the last four years. After high school she attended Iowa Western Community College where she competed in the UCA College Cheerleading National Championship, the most prestigious college cheerleading championship in the country; and continued toward her four-year degree at Midland University where she competed in the NCA National Cheerleading Association Collegiate Cheer Championship.
Following college, Chapman was hired as the head cheer coach at Lewis Central High School in Council Bluffs. While at LCHS, Kara led her teams to a 7th place state finish for AAA two years ago and a 4th place state finish for AAAA last season.
“I am honored to be part of the Iowa Lakes Community College family, and am looking forward to bringing great student athletes to the program,” commented Chapman.
“We are thrilled to have Kara in place to run our cheer program,” Athletic Director Troy Larson said. “She has a great passion for cheerleading and the positive impact it can have on student athletes at Iowa Lakes.”
