Cheer Leaders




A page from the 1940 Gulf High School yearbook in New Port Richey, Florida. Three cheerleaders pose in a black and white photograph at the top of the page with their names listed below. A notable student who appears on the yearbook page is Leland Clyde Poole (1922-1995). Born in Tarpon Springs, Florida, on November 29, 1922, Poole enlisted in the United States Navy on December 02, 1940, at the age of 19. He reached the rank of Quartermaster Chief Petty Officer in 1948. After retiring from the military, Poole worked with the Florida Marine Patrol. Leland Clyde Poole passed away on January 4, 1995, in his Florida home. The United States Navy interred Poole on March 11, 1996, at Florida National Cemetery, in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
