President

Shon Christy

Hello WEBC!  I am Shon Christy and I am proud to be your booster club president for the next two seasons!  This is my second term as president and while I am proud of where we are, I am even more excited about where we are going together!

I have 4 daughters involved at World Elite: Brielle (Authority/Legacy), Skye (Authority/Legacy), Brindle (Boss Babes), and Briet who just turned three and has starting taking classes (performance cheer soon)!  My wife Brittany also serves as a team mom for Boss Babes and Legacy.  WE love this gym and truly believe that this group is family!

I have been an entrepreneur for the last 11 years in the social media space where I opened Ohio's first social media company in 2010 and have been doing that ever since.  My company is called Shon Christy Social Media.  My company is also proud to sponsor our booster club and our gym wide events.

Vice President

Matt Dickson

 I’m Matt Dickson, Vice President of the booster club. When my daughter joined world elite three short years ago, I was like many of you. Lost, confused, curious, nervous. Those feelings very quickly changed as we met the other families throughout the gym. We felt included, like part of a family. We made the best friends we’ve ever had at this gym, and that’s why I chose to get so involved with the booster club. My job is to oversee the many fundraising opportunities we have, the event planning, and help all the families gain a sense of inclusion as soon as they can. We are super excited to begin your journeys with you, for season 5 at World Elite. Thank you for trusting this gym and it’s owners and coaches with your child’s hopes and dreams. We will help you see what a best in class gym experience really is!

Treasurer

Kristy Whittaker

Kristy has one daughter, Kaitlyn, who is 13 years old and going into the eighth grade at Brecksville-Broadview Heights Middle School. Kaitlyn is currently on Authority for the second season. Kristy harmlessly enrolled Kaitlyn in an afterschool tumbling program that was advertised at the elementary school the first year living in the district.  Kaitlyn took classes off and on until one day she landed her back handspring. It was at that point Kaitlyn asked her mom if she could join all-star cheer. After one year of the half year program during World Elite’s inaugural year, Kristy and Kaitlyn were ready to jump in with both feet. Last year was their first year in the full year in the program and both Kristy and Kaitlyn have made many friends and memories with their WE family.

Kristy has been in the financial world for her entire professional career. She has been at KeyBank for the past 7 years where she currently holds the position of Business Banking Sales Leader. Kristy loves helping business owners realize their dreams and it was through her passion for finance and business that brought her to the position of Treasurer for WEBC.

Both Kristy and Kaitlyn enjoy traveling to anywhere with a beach, mostly Naples, Florida and Redondo Beach, California. Kristy loves enjoying a drink and laughing with friends, especially on a patio near water, going to Cedar Point, and singing loudly in the car with Kaitlyn.  Besides Kaitlyn, Kristy also has a chubby black cat named Spooky.

Secretary

Shannon Vargo

My name is Shannon Vargo. My family and I have been involved with World Elite for over 7 years. My daughter Ayanna has been in the competitive cheer program for going on 5 seasons now.  My passion for this sport stems way back to my elementary school days through High School. It makes my heart so full that I get to share this experience with my daughter and see her love for what she does grow as she sets goals for herself and achieves them! Our time at WE has been such an amazing experience! The dedication from the owners and coaches to the athletes and families shows every time you walk in the gym. For the past 3 years I've had the pleasure of being a Team Rep for the gym, serving as a liaison to communicate information from the coaches/owners to the parents and athletes. I've always enjoyed serving and helping others. I look forward to hopefully meeting you all throughout this season!
