It may bes another cold morning, but as Minnesotans we’re proud of our weather as evidenced by the St. Paul Winter Carnival.

As our campus news, Tommie Media reports: A St. Thomas senior and a 2008 graduate were part of the 2011 St. Paul Winter Carnival royal family. This year’s West Wind princess crown belongs to senior Bridget Rissmann. Graduate Madalyn Dosch was crowned the carnival’s Queen of the Snows.

“Going to St. Thomas really was three years of service for me,” Dosch said. “I learned values of community and what it means to have a really strong network of friends and family because they’re there to support you.”

More information on the carnival and the coronation are available from Tommie Media and the Pioneer Press.
