Thank you for visiting the Advanced Cheer Crew All Starz website! Hi! my name is Coach Kristi Shaw-I am the proud Owner of ACC.
ON a personal note... here is my educational background: I graduated from NWOSU in 1993 with a Bachelors degree in Physical Education, health and wellness and Psychology (emphasis in Motivation Psych). I attended Cowley College,Tabor College, Oklahoma State and NWOSU. While in college i ran track ( 400 & 100 hurdles, 55 hurdles indoor and was on the 4x1 relay) I also was a collegiate cheerleader.......these two SPORTS are my favorite!! I got married in November of 93' to my soul mate- Coach Brian Shaw. I moved from Mooreland, Oklahoma to Arkansas City, Kansas to start my new chapter! I managed Maurices in Ponca City, Okla. for two years. I then drifted in to a new adventure by managing Mega Movies in Arkansas City, Ks and BLackwell, Oklahoma. In December of 95'Brian and I had our first baby girl... Halston Lea Shaw. I decided it was best that I resign from working so I could spend more mommy time with my baby girl.... yeah....loved every minute of it....but I missed interacting with customers & people!! so ...my next ventur was being a Dental Assistant. To say the least I hated this occupation, so this venture did NOT last!! In 1997 God came to my rescue and led me to the best place to work at ever!! Yes....Cowley College is where I am!! So, very grateful!! In 2001-- Brian and I are blessed again with another baby girl.... "Hadlea Renee! 18 years have flown by at Cowley! I have done so much at Cowley -- Gender Equity Director, Single Displaced Homemaker Program Director, GED Chief Examiner, Track and Field Sprinter, hurdle Coach, Head Cheerleading Coach, Intramural Director and what I am currently doing now.... Director of Student Life! I wouldn't trade any of my jobs for anything!! During my journey thus far in my life.... I have pretty much seen, heard and experienced alot of things. Some good and some not so good!
My Mission: In retrospect I truly feel like my calling in life is to make a DIFFERENCE in PEOPLE'S LIVES! I can honestly say that is why I started ACC. I truly, HONESTLY want to make an impact on the kids I coach. I pride my small gym on tough love and commitment! I give my heart and soul to the kids I coach, past, present and future! If I have ever coached you....you know that I am connected with you for life!!! EVEN if you DON'T cheer anymore.... my ACC CHEER FAMILY plays a siginificant role in my everyday life. With that being said....I feel like I have the best gym in the WORLD! YES, we are small but, WE ARE BIG IN HEART-- OF COURSE WE AREAMAZING IN TALENT ALSO!! My Cheer Coaches are awesome and so are my athletes!! Thanks again for showing interest in ACC!!! GO AND MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE WHEREVER YOUR PATH TAKES YOU!!
CHEERS TO YOU--
Coach Kristi Shaw
