Cheerleaders 9 HOW WAYNETTE FARRINGTON BECAME THE MASCOT, 1951-52 Cheerleaders
I don't know if there is room on the website for the "back story" I call it, of my becoming a mascot cheerleader. My mother tells the story that she COULD NOT keep me away from the cheerleaders . Every time that she'd put me down out of her lap, off I'd go to where the cheerleaders performed.
Finally they gave up. Meanwhile, I memorized every cheer and all the motions that went with them. People began to notice me when I hopped onto the grass, almost below the stadium and began to cheer with them, only I was in front of them. The cheerleaders saw me, but none of the crowd could see me. Carrie G. asked Mrs. Hilliard if they could ask me to be their mascot. One Friday night, Gary Daniels picked me up and put me on his shoulders and said, "Show me where your parents are." All the cheerleaders trailed along behind him .Mother said she almost "died" when she saw the cheerleaders coming toward her with me on Gary's shoulders. They asked my parents if I could be their mascot and the rest is "history" as they say. Mother made my costume with red satin from West Brothers and they got some saddle oxfords for me just like the cheerleaders and we were in "business". Gary Daniel writes me that he remembers one Friday night when they were really "throwing and tossing me around" and I threw up on him. So he REALLY remembers me. I believe that I was only a mascot for that one year, 1951 but I don't know and my mom or dad aren't around for me to ask. So if anyone finds my picture in the 1952 Grig, I'd sure like to see that too.
L-R, Jean Sentell, Cora Lou Brown, Sally Powell, Betty Jean Jones, Jean Ellen Rea, Pat Wilson, Carolyn Sale, ?, ?????? and Bessie Maness on the end of the first row. I cannot see the second row well enough to identify anyone. Third row, Dolores Brightis behind Carolyn Sale in the middle, ?, Lucy Ann Moore, Betty Fritz???,
Third Row; Dolores Bright is in the middle of the row behind Keitha Hough, ????, Mildred Boland, Sue Milner, Patsy Davis, Annetta Baker, Betty Lou Norwood, and Sherry Gresham on the end. Carol Whitfield was probably seated next to me butshe is not shown in the picture. Jo Ann Matthews is standing behind Sue Milner.
I can not see well enough to recognize the girls on the top rows.
1953-54 I think they are cheerleaders: L-R: Judy Gleason, Gary "Buddy" Smith, Sue Stanfield, Herbert Duncan, JoAnn Mathews, and Sammy David You are exactly right! Must have been cheerleader practice. A football hip injury ended Bud's participation in sports, but he wanted to stay involved as a cheerleader.
