The Alcorn State University cheerleading squad is looking to add more talented girls to help spread cheer and school spirit.

Alcorn cheerleading tryouts will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 30 in the E. E. Simmons Gymnasium. Participants are required to pay a $50, non-refundable registration fee.

Cheerleading coach Candance Buford looks forward to welcoming new participants to the cheerleading squad.

“After having an awesome season last year, I can’t wait to see what 2016 holds for us,” said Buford, who is looking for individuals who understand the work that goes into becoming an elite cheerleader.

“I truly want individuals who actually care about cheer. I want people who know all the effort and skill it takes to be a cheerleader. I would love to see more tumblers come out.”

For more information, contact Buford at (601) 877-6368 or
