Regina King Is The Queen Of Cheer!!! Actress Dedicates Time As Volunteer Coach

- By Bossip Staff

Regina King is doing her part to give Hollyweird a good name. The actress volunteers her time with California teens and pre-teens coaching cheerleading. Pop the hood for details!

Regina King was recently profiled in the March issue of InStyle Magazine for her volunteer work. Here’s the article so you don’t have to strain your eyes on that scan.

Three years ago, Regina King’s 13-year-old son, Ian, began playing football for the Pasadena Panthers — a team within a nonprofit football and cheerleading league dedicated to empowering young people from all economic and ethnic backgrounds in their Southern California community. When the Southland actress heard that the team’s cheerleaders were in need of volunteer coaches, she raised her hand right away. “I know how to dance, and I’m an athletic person,” says King, who was a cheerleader in high school, if only for a week (she opted to devote herself to track). For several months a year, she trains and develops routines for 16 Pasadena Panthers cheerleaders between the ages of 10 and 14 — and attends games. “The most gratifying thing is when a girl says she can’t do something but then figures out that she can,” King says.

Wow! Props to her … We’re constantly hearing regular folks saying they’re too busy to volunteer and Regina’s a mom AND and actress who makes time. We have to devote more time and energy to our youth! They’re the future.

    One of the most positive actresses in Hollywood who doesn’t get enough credit. She is doing her thing on the Southland series on TNT. She has really blossomed since her days as Brenda on 227. I’m also happy about her and Malcolm Jamal-Warner. They make a great couple. They both seem to have their priorities straight and good heads on the shoulders. I wish them the best.

    What a great actress and mentor Regina King is and I’m glad she chose to give back in such a real way where she can be up close and personal with young women who are inspired by her and all her accomplishments and that she can encourage to chase dreams of their own.
