DCC Alumni Spotlight – Shannon Hall Salter
I had the pleasure of speaking with Shannon Hall Salter, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from 1987-1990, and learning a little about her time on the team. She was a member of Show Group for her second and third season, as well as a 2nd group leader. She cheered with Kelli Finglass, the organization’s current director. I asked Shannon what it was like cheering with Kelli and she responded that she was a wonderful leader and an excellent veteran to follow. She has a photo of Kelli napping on former director, Suzanne Mitchell’s shoulder. She mentioned how you could clearly see the mentorship between Suzanne and Kelli, and she knew at the time that Kelli would be an amazing successor and the only person she had in mind who could handle the task. She also made a point to mention that Kelli is a lovely singer !
