Fuemmeler New Cheer/Dance Coach At CMU
The new cheer and dance coach at Central Methodist University comes with most impressive credentials. And Terin Fuemmeler has the enthusiasm to match it.
Fuemmeler, who began work at CMU this past Monday (April 30), has most recently been the cheer coach for the Glasgow High School Yellowjackets. But not long ago, she was on the sidelines as a cheerleader for the Kansas City Chiefs.
And before that, the Olathe, Kan. native was a Kansas University Crimson Girl and Spirit Squad member. She is a KU graduate.
"Cheer and dance have been my life, from high school through college and at the professional level," Fuemmler said. "I love it. The students here will gain so many different skills they can use, no matter what they choose to do in life."
Fuemmeler will coach and supervise both CMU's cheerleaders and its dance team. Yet the job involves much more than choreography and technique, though those are certainly important parts of it.
She will also be expected to actively recruit new members to the two squads, and monitor the academic performance of members of both groups. Fundraising and budget management are important elements, too.
"I like the way the position is structured," Fuemmler said. "It's an enormous load, but I will give it everything I have in me - it's going to be great."
Fuemmeler will also teach classes for CMU.
It's a good thing Fuemmeler has an abundance of energy, because in addition to her new opportunity at Central Methodist, she and husband Josh have other demands for their time. Three in particular: daughter Tenley (2) and seven-month-old twins Tyley and Trey.
"I want to grow the cheer and dance programs at CMU, and make them something that young women and men want to come here for," she said. "I want the University to be proud of the program and I want the students to be just as proud.
"This is an incredible opportunity," Fuemmler concluded.
Founded in 1854, Central Methodist programs range from undergraduate and graduate studies to high-school dual credit offerings. Serving more than 5,000 students on its historic main campus in Fayette, through collaborative programs at locations across Missouri, and online, the CMU mission emphasizes academic and professional excellence, ethical leadership, and social responsibility.
