Sponsor Scarlet and Gray
Sponsor Scarlet / Sponsor Gray is a new program being implemented this year, providing alumni cheerleaders and friends of The Ohio State University Cheerleading Program a unique opportunity to support and mentor the current squad. The members of the cheerleading squad must report to Columbus several weeks before the start of fall quarter, leaving jobs (and home cooking) to participate in preseason functions, games, camp and practices. Sponsor Scarlet / Sponsor Gray is an effort to help current cheerleaders handle some of the expenses of being on campus before the dorms and cafeterias open for fall quarter by organizing simple dinners, providing gift cards for campus area restaurants, organizing potlucks for the squad or other in-kind support as determined by the host. The program provides a unique opportunity for mentoring relationships between current members and alumni members of the cheerleading team. This concept is an idea borrowed from TBDBITL and is the brainchild of TBDBITL alumni society member Curtis Littlegreen. TBDBITL implemented their program in 2006 and the program has been well received and continues to grow each year.
