Three-year veteran Tara is from Waynesville, NC. She graduated with bachelor's degree in social work with a minor in dance from Western Carolina University, where she was also Captain of the Dance Team.
Sharp readers will remember the connection between Waynesville and Pro Bowl Cheerleaders. In 2006 both the Panthers Pro Bowl Cheerleader, Amy, and the Falcons Pro Bowl Cheerleader, Melanie, were from Waynesville.
When I asked my co-worker,who has a Math degree from Vanderbilt, to calculate the odds of three Pro Bowl Cheerleaders coming from a town of less than 10,000. He buried himself in his cube, and I heard some grunts and squeals. Eventually he emerged all sweaty with his eyes had rolled back into his head. Let's just say it's a little less than a bazillion-to-one.
