Secretary - Jessica Gallup

After graduating from Highland High School, Jessica received a scholarship to attend Idaho State University where she met the love of her life—who also attended the BEST HIGH SCHOOL around! They married a few short months later. They now have 5 amazing children-1 Boy -Morgan who is 19, and 4 girls-Madison 18, McKenna 15, Marissa 14 and Miley 10. They call them their “Little M&M’s”. AND THEY WILL ALL ATTEND HIGHLAND!  Balancing family life, trying to be a great mother, and a great coach has been challenging at times, but it has been such a great experience for her family and herself. She says, “I’d be lost without it!” Jessica has coached both dance and cheer in her past. She has coached at Franklin Jr. High, Century Cheer, and Highland High School. She has been the Highland Cheer coach since 2004. During her time as Head Coach of Highland Cheerleaders she has been the fortunate recipient of 10 State Titles and the Idaho Coaches of Dance and Cheer Coach in 2009. She was also awarded the “Highland High School Hall of Fame Service Award.” In addition, she currently co-owns Cheer Extreme Idaho, “I Love Cheer”, and is the 5th District Board of Control Cheer Representative. Jessica says, “Coaching has its ups and downs. The good has always outweighed the bad. I love what I do. I love the association with the teenagers. I love that they keep me feeling young. I hope I can set a good example for them to follow through my efforts, and in doing that---I hope that they can turn around and make this world better through their experiences.” The advice she would give is, “Never Give Up! Everyone has their own special talents and abilities to share. Figure out what yours are—and share them! Put a smile on your face each day -even if you don’t feel like it. It will in the end-cheer you up! Behind each trial you face there are more opportunities knocking on the door.”

Membership - Katie Williams


Katie was born and raised a proud rustic Idaho girl. As a young child she was very shy. One day, at the age of 10, she went with a friend and unknowingly tried out for a cheerleading team. That experience changed this shy little girl for the rest of her life. She cheered throughout middle school and high school. After high school she married her school crush and best friend. Together they have been blessed with four spunky kids. Being a mom is her greatest joy and Katie loves the variety of challenges and fun it brings. She also has a deep love for the outdoors and adventure as well as interests in distance running, planners, traveling, piano, crafting and volunteering in church, PTA and DYW programs.  Shortly after graduation she coached a junior high team and assisted at a high school. A year later she was asked to be the head coach of the high school and ran both programs. She continued coaching for the next 10 years. Her time spent coaching was one of the greatest highlights of her life. She treasured sharing her passion with her participants and watching them grow and change both physically and mentally. She enjoyed doing all of the choreography and music editing for all of their routines. She thrived off the challenge of coming up with formations, transitions, motions, wording, tumbling, and especially stunts. Once her children became more demanding, she decided to take a break from full time coaching. She has been a judge for cheer, dance, and a technical judge for many years. Her roots as a participant, coach, and coach’s advocate have given her a deep realization of the importance of trained, qualified judges. It’s a responsibility she doesn’t take lightly. She became a board member of the ICDC in 2014 and loves working with coaches throughout the state to be the voice of their wants and needs.

Communications Director - Angie Smith

Hailing from a National winning program in Scottsdale, Arizona, Angie relocated to Boise, Idaho in 2010 and joined the coaching staff at Rocky Mountain HS in Meridian, winning 2 state titles that year. Angie has also coached National winning all-star teams. After 2010, she "retired" from coaching high school cheer to focus on strengthening programs and providing opportunities for cheer all over Idaho. Currently, she owns TecCo, a company dedicated to providing customized cheer services such as clinics, choreography, and competitions at affordable prices. Through TecCo, Angie believes she gets the best of all worlds by being able to work with coaches and cheerleaders of all ages, in multiple locations, of varying strengths, all year long.  Additionally, she judges all-star competitions outside of Idaho. She joined the board of ICDC because she wanted to stay connected to the heart of high school cheer through the awesome network of coaches involved and provide support and education on an on-going basis.
