Northeast remembers the life of sophomore cheerleader Mikaylah Bird

GOOSE LAKE — It was more than just a game Tuesday night as Northeast High School looked back on the life of sophomore cheerleader Mikaylah Bird before their games against Maquoketa.

Mikaylah tragically passed away last weekend and on Tuesday everyone wore purple in her honor because it was her favorite color.

Before the start of the women’s varsity game, the cheerleading team walked out to center court and held a moment of silence as they locked arms.

When the boys team came out, they all placed flowers in front of their megaphone and pompoms, which had a designated spot behind the cheerleaders. The cheerleaders did multiple claps with Mikaylah’s name.

At halftime of the boys game, all the students took to the court, locking arms in a circle as the song ‘Memories’ by Conan Gray played.

The celebration of Makaylah’s life will be this Sunday the 29th at 3:00 p.m. at Millennium Banquet Hall in Goose Lake.
