Tirrea Billings: Cheering Opportunities

December 03, 2013

Tirrea Billings is an explorer who is always looking to get involved with new experiences.

“I chose to come to Alma because I was looking for a small community with significant opportunities,” she says. “I’ve been able to find those opportunities; it’s been a great experience.

“I was involved in competitive cheer all through middle school and high school, “ she says. “Here at Alma we’ve come a long way and are headed to Nationals for the second year in a row.”

Billings has always embraced community involvement opportunities and has found an outlet at Alma.

“I’ve always been involved in volunteer work and communities, such as Kids Night Out, fundraisers, taking care of the elderly. With Colleges Against Cancer, we ‘re hitting bigger results than ever,” she says.

What’s next for Tirrea?

“Right now I’m majoring in environmental science with a new media studies minor,” she says. “I’d like to begin work with nature documentaries. Discovery Channel, National Geographic, things like that. Eventually I’d like to work on projects for Disney Nature.”
