Alumni Spotlights

I had the privilege of interviewing DCC Alumni Doris Boettigheimer Bonvino. Doris cheered for the Dallas Cowboys for 3 seasons from 1979-1981. I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with Doris! I was inspired by her discipline, her love and dedication to her family, and her kind nature. I am grateful for the many pockets of wisdom and advice she kindly shared with me. Doris is a Dallas native and grew up with intensive training in ballet and jazz. She developed a love for performing from an early age

Allana was born and raised in Irving, TX and now resides in Addison, TX. She cheered for the Dallas Cowboys football team during the 1994 and 1995 seasons. You know what that means? Allana cheered at the last Cowboys Super Bowl appearance - XXX, and she cheered with Shelly B! She cheered just a few years before the belt buckle was reintroduced to the uniform, and she is very jealous that she missed that transition. Allana started her dance career as a gymnast. She had been a gymnast

Nancy Harrison is someone you and I would consider a pioneer of the team we now call the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. During a time when you had to be a high school student to try out for the squad, Nancy, a 17 year old senior, was one of many to show up to tryouts in her culottes at Highland Park Gymnasium. To her excitement, she was one of the few who were selected for the 1968 ​CowBelles & Beaux, the coed cheer squad who represented the Dallas

Holly Hubbard is a born and raised Texas girl who grew up in Denton, Texas. She graced the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders organization for 5 years where she had the privilege of serving as a group leader and experiencing the great opportunities that come with wearing the bright and shining stars. She auditioned for the team as a brave 20-year-old and danced for the 2011-2015 seasons. Prior to DCC, Holly was a member of the University of North Texas Dance Team for 3 years. Holly and her family

On February 25, I met Jayne Ann Maxwell Kuhn for coffee and had the pleasure of hearing about her journey as a DCC. Jayne only cheered for one year in 1980. Her journey started while she was a cheerleader at UNT. Tex Schramm and Suzanne Mitchell were walking around campus one day and saw her and thought she would be a perfect cheerleader. Tex and Suzanne were actually in the middle of Finals, and they didn’t have enough girls that they liked to put through to make

Carey Pound is originally from Montgomery, Alabama, but considers Atlanta, Georgia her hometown.  She currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and two daughters, Alexandra and Olivia.  Carey grew up dancing and cheering through grade school.  After high school, Carey attended Auburn University and auditioned for the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders.  Carey cheered for the Atlanta Falcons for 7 years, where she spent two seasons as a captain and was selected to represent the team as their 2009 Pro Bowl Cheerleader.   It was at the 2009 Pro

I was so thrilled when I found out I was going to be interviewing DCC Alumni,  Abby Bertrand Heasley. Having the honor of growing up around the organization, I knew Abby during her journey of being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. It was so nice to catch up with her and talk to her as a DCC sister,  especially since she was once a role model for me when I was little. Abby grew up loving the Dallas Cowboys. She dressed as a cheerleader for Halloween when she was

Becky Ohmes was a Rookie Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader in 1989, the year that Jerry Jones became the owner of the Dallas Cowboys Football Club. She grew up in Farmers Branch, TX and said that she had always idolized the DCC. She specifically remembers looking up to “the cheerleader in the 70’s with the pigtails.” She even requested pigtails as her hairstyle of choice when she would go to gymnastics practice, as a little girl, because of that DCC! She had a friend that decided to audition, which

Tokyo native, Tomoko Mita Johnston, made her first trip to Dallas, Texas as a teenager alongside her dance team, to compete for a national title. She recalls coming in 6th place at the competition, and wanting to one day win a national title. Little did she know then, that she would one day perform as one of America’s Sweethearts! Tomoko moved to the USA to attend Oklahoma State University and then transferred to complete her studies at Steven F.Austin State University. She was a member of both

Cynde Lewis was a member of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders for only 2 years, and had more incredible experiences as a DCC than one can even dream! Originally from Richardson, TX, Cynde first heard about the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders audition while listening to the Wolf Radio, a Dallas country music station, which advertised the upcoming search to its listeners in the DFW area. While she knew nothing about football at the time, Cynde had an extensive background in cheerleading, having participated in the sport from 6th grade
