FOXBOROUGH — Alyssa Caddle leads a double life. Not only is she a New England Patriots cheerleader, the Boston resident also holds two degrees in engineering and works as a program manager for EMC’s office of sustainability in Hopkinton. On Thursday, during February school vacation week, she helped show about 300 Girl Scouts and other students that science and math are all around us, and they can be fun and exciting to study, too.
“The Patriots cheerleaders love to get involved in anything that is girl-focused or STEM-focused,” Caddle said, referring to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. “We love when we get the chance to come in and show girls that, yes, you can be a cheerleader, but that’s not all. You can be that and have a great career.”
