1966-67 Snowden Band with Mr. T. My last year at Snowden before going to Central.
Thought this might be fun to share with fellow alumni. Jesse McDonald and I met at Snowden in 1997 as seventh graders. We became fast friends sharing classes and playing sports. We eventually fell out of touch after high school - Jesse moved to Murfreesboro for school and I stayed here in Memphis. I began doing marketing work and Jesse got involved in the culinary scene in Nashville. We reconnected in the past several years doing competition cooking. After a string a of success on the competition circuit, he's moved back to Memphis and we'll be opening a food truck this fall! And none of this would have been possible without a chance meeting at Snowden!
Once a Greenie, always a Greenie! What is the current mascot? How many mascots has Snowden had? When did they change? I was definitely a Greenie, even with a very short time of Green Devil.
Every year from 1941 to 1995 !

Hi! I attended Snowden school back in 1967 (5th grade) while my father did a fellowship in the University of Tennessee. almost 50 years later I am spiritually returning to that wonderful age and trying to contact my schoolmates. I was a curiosity back then, as Im from Argentina. I came across the 1967 yearbook and would like to contact any of my former schoolmates. I was known at that time as Humphrey Alberti, the closer we could get to Humberto, my real name. My sister Sylvia also attended Snowder as a 7th grader and would also love to get some feedback from those times.

Snowden School Foundation needs to rebuild its board after Covid halted efforts to support the school we love for the last 2 years.

VERY interested in the makeup of the board reflecting that of our community and student body.

Please contact me if you want to make a difference for those Greenies!

It’s time the country pays teachers what they earn - Memphis Commercial Appeal

Bryce Ashby, thank you for your support of Snowden’s children, teachers and our community! As a fellow “Snowden Dude”, my eyes have also been opened. Our schools and teachers - and ultimately all of the children are underfunded by our TN state legislators. It is wrong, shortsighted and must change.

It’s time the country pays teachers what they earn - Memphis Commercial Appeal The truth about public education in America isn’t that our schools are failing our kids. It’s that we are failing our teachers.

Alumni Question: words to the school song the same with Greenie mascot as with Greendog mascot? Or different? Who can provide the words?

04/14/2018

Who are the artists that have drawn both the Greenie and the Greendog for things around the school and for the yearbooks? If you know someone that created some of these drawings get them in touch with everyone here and see if they can dig out their drawings from the archives and share them with us.

Question for Alumni: When did the Snowden mascot become the Greendog?
