48.0%correct
George W. Bush attended Phillips Academy in Andover, a well-known Massachusetts prep school, from 1961 to 1964. His participation in extracurricular activities included cheerleading and helping to organize an intramural stickball league. While serving as head cheerleader in 1963, George W. also organized and starred in a skit with his male classmates. Intended to mock rival schools, the skit features the boys dressed in wigs, skirts and ‘filled-out’ sweaters. Not described as an academic heavyweight, ‘Lip’ gained recognition for his superior ‘people skills.’ Source: PBS.org; NYTimes.com
