Program Director | Varsity and Competition Coach
Hey Y'all, My name is MKilar Otte! I am the Program Director, Varsity Coach, and Competition Coach. I am a retired D-1 Cheerleader who cheered from middle school onward. I ran a boys gymnastics program while I was in high school. I have a love for cheerleading that I work to express in every aspect of the way I coach the sport. I can't wait to have your athlete as a part of this program!
Hi, my name is Jenna Witteman and I’m excited to be the JV Cheer coach! I am a retired collegiate cheerleader and dancer coming to SME with over 5 years of instructing experience under Universal Cheerleaders Association. I also had the pleasure of coaching at Hays High School during my senior year of college at Fort Hays State University.
I have a true passion for helping athletes gain confidence in themselves, specifically through the empowering outlet of cheerleading!
My name is Carolyn Wolff and I am the Freshman Cheer Coach. I was a Lancer and attended Shawnee Mission East from 2009-2012! While at East, I cheered all four years, was captain my sophomore year, and was on Varsity for two years. I am also a pre-kindergarten teacher at Comanche Elementary School. I look forward to returning to my alma mater and coaching the sport I truly love. Go East, and remember, it’s always great to be a Lancer!
