TCU heats up during Snoweek

 

It's been a long, cold winter, but the students at Tri-City United High School aren't letting that stop them from heating up Snoweek with activities, competitions, themed spirit days, and ending with the formal Snoball dance on Saturday, Feb. 9. 
The very first Tri-City United Snoweek King and Queen will be crowned on Friday, Feb. 8, from the court of 10 senior class candidates.
 
Candidates
Titan Spirit Advisors Jen Davidson and Carolyn Harmeyer worked together to come up with an organized process for selecting candidates. Any senior in good standing who wanted to be in the running for king or queen filled out an application that asked what they do to promote school spirit, why they would be a good candidate and what activities they are involved in outside of school. The applications (with names removed) were then reviewed by faculty and 10 candidates were selected.
On Friday, Feb. 1, the five boys and five girls making up the court were announced to the school. The young women vying for the Queen's crown are Hannah Montreuil, daughter of Rick and Deb Montreuil, Michaela Navejas, daughter of Ruben and Cindy Navejas, Sam Ruger, daughter of Eric Ruger and Renee Thompson, Megan Scheffert, daughter of Michael Scheffert and Karen Gjerstad, and Rachel Smisek, daughter of Chris and Susanna Smisek.
King candidates are Terry Hein, son of Paul Hein, Juan Moncada, son of Octavio and Araceli Moncada, Jordan Trnka, son of Mike Trnka and the late Tanya Trnka, Alex Turgeon, son of Paul and Cheryl Turgeon, and Mitch Vosejpka, son of Larry and Shelly Vosejpka.
The reigning TCU Snoweek 2013 King and Queen will be crowned before the student body on Friday morning at the pep-fest and talent show.
 
Activities
Starting Monday, students dressed for pajama day, western day, jersey day, and will finish with favorite movie character day on Thursday and Titan spirit day on Friday. They also played Snoweek bingo, competed in a floor hockey tournament, and will attend or perform in the talent show and pep-fest on Friday morning. 
 
Dinner and Dance
Davidson said that Snoweek wraps up on Saturday evening with what was planned to be a dinner in the high school commons, catered by Lakeside Supper Club, followed by the dance. However, she reported that as of Tuesday, not many tickets were purchased, so the dinner might have to be cancelled. 
The Snoball dance starts at 8 p.m. in the high school gym.
