By Kaitlyn Dahle -- East Tennessean

At 20 years old, Alexandra Whitehead is a junior here at ETSU majoring in Business Management. Like many, she is originally from Elizabethton, Tenn. She decided to cheer at ETSU for she had been doing it almost all of her life.

“This year will be my 15th year in cheerleading.” Whitehead says.  Which means she has been cheerleading for as long as she has been in school, “I was about 6 years old when I had started and just never stopped.”

Before coming to ETSU, Coach Brittany Williams encouraged her to come to a few games here at ETSU to see if taking cheerleading into the college level was right for her. “I knew that after watching the cheerleaders during the games that I also wanted to make cheering at ETSU a goal of mine.”
