The snow was falling outside, and the lights were shining on the stars of the night as the boys lined up on the stage… introducing the SA Snowmen Court, composed of several young men ranging from the freshmen to senior classes, each having been voted to the court by their peers! All the students patiently waited all night to find out which of their friends were chosen as our first ever snowcoming king!

The homecoming court has been a long-standing tradition at St. Andrew’s, and many thought it would be fun to share the spotlight with a group of elected boys for the New Year’s Eve in New York winter dance. The homecoming maids and their escorts are always introduced with a short biography when they walk around the gym and field, so it is only fair for some of the Snowmen to also have similar questions to answer. The student council played a pivotal role to make sure that this court could happen this school year.

“The SA Student Life Committee has kicked this idea around for a while now and it was finally raised as a serious question at the student council retreat this year,” Student Life Committee Sponsor Marty Kelly said. “I agreed as long as the students took it as seriously as they do the election of homecoming maids and would elect students they felt best represented their community; I didn’t want Snowcoming Court to be the ‘sillier’ equivalent.”

The freshman Snowmen are Dami Oluwatade and Cooper Word; the sophomore Snowmen are Byron Bishop, Dallas Ford, and Rand Raju; the junior Snowmen are Aaron Cooper, Arness Georgetown, Sameer Khan, and Hayes Waycaster; and the senior Snowmen are Charley Blount, Bradley Brantley, David Caddle, Ian Espy, and AJ Leflore.
