Rockmart crowns Anna Snider as 2018 Homecoming Queen
Rockmart’s Homecoming week is over and a 2018 Homecoming Queen has been crowned.
Senior Anna Snider was escorted onto the field by her two brothers, Andrew Snider and Daniel Snider, and her mom Lisa Snider, where 2017 Homecoming Queen Megan Sims took the honor of giving Snider the crown.
Snider has been an active member of the high school’s band for four years and is an honor Thespian, President of Thespian Troupe 1024 this year. She is also a part of student council, Chickfil-A Leader Academy, and is Senior class secretary. After high school, she plans to attend Reinhardt University or the University of Tennessee to major in musical theatre and pursue a career as an actress, singer or director.
When asked about most influential person in her life, Snider replied, “Mr. David Snipes. He left a legacy with the entire band that will be carried on throughout the season.” Snider said her favorite memories of high school “will always be the feeling after performing, whether it be band or theatre.”
“It is an honor to represent Rockmart High School and I owe everything to my mom, my brothers, and my band and theatre family,” Snider said.
This year’s homecoming court included representatives from each grade level. Seniors were Anna Snider, Cambree Stanley, D’Niya Wilson, Jennifer Crawford, Logan Patterson, and Mallorie Dover. Juniors were Valerie Williams and Carlee Graham,
