From the Cincinnati Enquirer:
Tara Willson, a Ben-Gal cheerleader and a research assistant at the University of Cincinnati, sang the national anthem before Saturday's Bengals-Patriots game at Paul Brown Stadium.
Willson works in the laboratory of Dr. Kathleen Heppner Gose in the UC College of Medicine's Division of Epithelial Pathobiology.
"I happened on the sidelines one time and the Ben-Gals coach heard me. She asked me to sing for the team," Willson said. "I sang for the team when the Bengals did an overseas tour."
Willson, 25, has been a Ben-Gal for three years. She is a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a double major in biotechnology and biology. She lives in Florence.
