Reunited and it "Cheers" so Good!
Here is a “Cheer Out” to Alumni Cheerleaders member and former Philadelphia 76ers cheerleader, Darlene Cavalier. She is the founder of ScienceCheerleader.com that promotes the citizens involvement in science and science-related policy.
ARE YOU A SCIENCE CHEERLEADER?
Last week the Science Cheerleaders made another national media appearance on the Today Show, featuring women of the Sacramento Kings, Washington Wizards, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, St. Louis Rams, Charlotte Bobcats, Cincinatti Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs and other teams. Science Cheerleaders are current and alumni NFL and NBA performers who work in or study science, technology, engineering or math. These women appear in their local communities to "pep up" the science industry, with a special emphasis on influencing young girls to learn more about STEM fields. The Science Cheerleaders are often asked to appear at major science events, make visits to corporations and schools, and most recently formed an alliance with Pop Warner Cheerleaders.
If you are a qualifying Science Cheerleader, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your recent headshot photograph, current location, cheer/dance experience and STEM experience. Currently, Science Cheerleaders are in demand in Orlando, Florida for an October 6th event and Tucson, Arizona for a November 10-11 event. Short distance travel, meals and accommodations are compensated or provided when necessary. Current performers should receive permission from your organization to get involved. View photos, cheerleader profiles, and other articles at www.sciencecheerleader.com and become a fan on Facebook.
