Booneville, Miss. - The Northeast Mississippi Community College cheerleading program has once again assembled an outstanding crew to energize one of the top fan bases in the country.
Sixteen ladies are part of the spirit squad for the upcoming 2017-18 academic year. They will make their official debut during the first home football game of the season on Thursday, September 7 versus East Central Community College.
"I am looking forward to another talented group this year," said Northeast head coach Chasity Moore. "I have high expectations and goals for them as they begin to prepare for the season. We are excited to hit the sidelines to cheer for the Tigers."
Six athletes return for their final campaign in a black-and-gold uniform, including Alleigh Elder and Megan Mauney of Pine Grove High School. Ripley natives Kaitlin Brannan and C.J. Childers also come to the City of Hospitality from Tippah County.
The remaining newcomers are a mixture of out-of-district athletes and some that reside inside Northeast's traditional service area of Alcorn, Prentiss, Tippah, Tishomingo and Union counties.
From pep rallies on Thursday afternoons in the fall to the final whistle of the year inside legendary Bonner Arnold Coliseum, Northeast's cheerleaders have been charged with providing positive support for the athletic department since the college opened its doors in the late 1940s.
