2021 Snow Queen
On January 9th, Miss. Hoven, April Simon was crowned the 2021 South Dakota Snow Queen! April is the third person in 75 years of history to be named both the Jr. Snow Queen (2018 South Dakota Snow Queen) and Snow Queen (2021 South Dakota Snow Queen)! April has been raised in Hoven, South Dakota all 18 years of her life! She’s currently a senior at Hoven High School and stays busy participating in various activities/clubs through her school and community. April is involved in Student Council (President), National Honors Society (President), French Club (Secretary), French National Honors Society, HOSA (Vice President), FFA, All School Play, and Band/Marching Band! She has also been a Varsity Football Cheerleader for the Potter County Battlers the past four years and this past fall, her senior year, she was named Co-Captain! April could not do all of this if it wasn’t for the ones who support and love her the most, her family. Her parents, Brad Simon & Fran Simon, are constantly chasing her around to watch her in anything she decides to pursue. With them are her four best friends, her siblings. April has two older sisters, Abigail (24) & Autumn (23), and two younger brothers, Grant (Junior, 17) & Garret (Sophomore 15)! April truly believes she wouldn’t be the person she is today without them, they are the ones she loves the most and will be forever thankful for! In her seldom free time, April enjoys traveling, shopping, being a social butterfly, spending time with friends & family, spending time outdoors (especially in the summertime), driving around in her small town, listening to music, watching Netflix, napping, and cuddling her kittens. April’s future plans after high school seem to change daily! As of now, she plans to attend Northern State University (Aberdeen, South Dakota). April is very excited for her year in crown. She is anxious to travel, meet new people, see new places, create new memories, and grow as an individual. April’s South Dakota roots are very significant to her. She is beyond proud to be from her small South Dakota community. She believes here is where she has been taught great lessons and values for herself and her life to come. One the greatest lessons April has been taught is, “be true to yourself.” She believes each person should be proud of who they are and love themselves. We only get one life to live so we shouldn’t waste it trying to change ourselves, just own who we are and have fun! With all that being said, April is honored and thrilled to represent the great state of South Dakota and share her journey with all of you!
