The court is selected annually by the senior class. An assembly is set for Friday, Feb. 6, that will feature an introduction of the six candidates along with a video made by students in the CHS television studio.

The video this year is to be filmed and edited by senior Margot Register with the assistance of fellow senior Jordan Burkholder.

The videos feature photos of the candidates as babies and follow through their childhood and teen years.

Following presentation of the video, the entire student body will select “Sir Valentine” from the field of candidates.

The announcement will occur at the CHS dance on Saturday, Feb. 7, when the winner gets a crown.
