The 2010 World Champion New Orleans Saints “Saintsaitions” Cheer Squad features two beautiful young women from right here in Cenla. Alexa Cruz and Maggie Dewitt are working hard to help cheer the Saints to another Super Bowl victory!
Alexa, a 19-year-old graduate of Alexandria Senior High, is currently majoring in Fashion Design at LSU in Baton Rouge. With dreams of founding her own successful fasion line, Alexa is driven to succeed in everything she does. Since joining the squad, Alexa cites “Wednesday at the Square” as her favorite experience thus far as a Saintsation. “It allowed me to interact with the great people and children of New Orleans,” she explains. Alexa credits her dance instructor as one of the greatest positive influences in her life outside her family. As a member of the Saintsations, Alexa is also keenly aware of her position as a role model for younger girls everywhere. “My advice for younger girls is that hard work will lead you to good things,” explains Alexa.
Like Alexa, Maggie Dewitt is also an Alexandria native, having graduated from Holy Savior Menard Central High School, and is also a student at LSU. Maggie is majoring in Business Management/ Nutritional Science in Baton Rouge. She says her ultimate dream is to own and operate her own health club and dance studio. Maggie cites the opportunity to be a role model for young girls as the very best part about being a Saintsation. “I tell young girls to never thing that anything is impossible. Impossible is just a word used as an excuse not to try,” she explains. Maggie also relishes the opportunity to interact with the people of New Orleans. “I love to talk and connect with the fans. They truly are the best in the country!”
The beautiful and talented ladies of the Saintsations are dedicated to supporting the World Champs as they march toward potential back-to-back SuperBowl titles. In addition to their role supporting the Who Dat Nation on the sidelines, the team also makes numerous public appearances throughout the year supporting various causes and stars in the annual Saintsation calendar, which is available for purchase on their website at www.saintsations.net or through the Saints website at www.neworleanssaints.com/saintsations/.
