Attendants to the King and Queen:

Steven Burpoe & Corine Becker

Steven is the son of Tim Burpoe and Sue Cherny. Steven is the middle brother of three, falling between older brother Joe and younger brother Michael. This gives him "middle child status" which explains his idiosyncrasies. Steven has been captain of each of the three sports he plays: football, basketball and baseball. He has been active in men's ensemble, the musicals and a variety of other clubs. He plans to attend college in the fall - hopefully some place will take him.

Corine is the daughter of Dale and Cass Becker and the sister of Alex. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Women's Ensemble and secretary of the senior class. Corrine is also a three-sport athlete, playing soccer and running indoor and outdoor track and field. Next year she plans to study sports medicine and run track in college. Corrine is honored to be a member of the 2009 Winter Carnival Court and wishes everyone a happy carnival.
