yaleFormer president George W. Bush was the head cheerleader for Phillips Academy Andover in Massachusetts. Ronald Reagan, “The Gipper” himself, was a cheerleader at Eureka College. Dwight D. Eisenhower was actually a cheerleader at West Point Academy. And Franklin D. Roosevelt, in a sad twist of irony, was actually a cheerleader at Harvard in the early part of the 20th century, long before polio befell him.
Famous Girl Cheerleaders? The list goes on and on and includes Meryl Streep, Ann-Margret, Sally Field, Alicia Silverstone, Halle Berry, Katie Couric, Vanna White, Raquel Welch, Sandra Bullock, and Cybill Shepherd. Madonna was a cheerleader (and a straight A student, too!). Even Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsberg (!!!) was once a cheerleader.
