Snowflake High School
Thank You Sponsors
We would like to give a big THANK YOU to all our sponsors past and present! Sponsors play a big part in the football program. Each year we raise money that helps facilitate the football program. Sponsorship funds pay for football camps, travel to games, team meals, refreshing helmets, film equipment and other necessary gear. While we understand this year is not a typical season, those needs still exist and your sponsorship is key to the success of the Snowflake Lobos Football Team.
Head Coach Kay Solomon wants you to know your sponsorship is much more. In his words:
"Being a Lobos Football Booster means being a part of a football legacy that spans nearly a century. Over those many years, the support of community businesses and individuals has helped maintain a championship caliber program that instills a winning mindset on the gridiron as well as in real life. As a coach, I often tell our players that I wouldn’t do this job if it was only about football. While I do love the game and a good win under the Friday night lights, the best part of coaching is seeing the character that this game helps build within our players. They learn lifelong lessons related to teamwork, dedication, integrity, sacrifice, and effort that will serve them well as they face the challenges of life. Your support helps make this possible. On behalf of myself and the hundreds of boys I’ve had the privilege of coaching, thank you for your support."
Carvel & Cleone Solomon
The Snowflake Lobo Football Booster Club is proud to recognize Carvel and Cleone Solomon as the honorary sponsors for the 2021 football season. The Solomons are both products of the Snowflake/Taylor Community having both lived here for most of their entire lives. Both graduates of Snowflake High School, and they are proud parents of eight children all graduates of Snowflake High School as well. They also have 19 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren with another expected to arrive in January. The Solomons have always been grateful for the opportunity to grow up in this community, and have always strived to help strengthen and promote the towns of Taylor and Snowflake along with the rich heritage that exists here.
Carvel was born in Winslow, Arizona where he lived until about the age of 8 years old. His family moved to Taylor, where his father worked various jobs but mostly focused on the logging and lumber industry. Tragically, Carvel’s father died when Carvel was 13 years old. As the oldest of his siblings, Carvel went to work to help provide for the family. Many good men helped Carvel to learn the building trade, which served Carvel, his own family, and many others well through the remainder of Carvel’s life. Carvel continued his education and was a lettered in Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Track and Field during his high school years. He went on to graduate from high school, served an LDS mission in the Northwestern States, and attended college at both BYU and ASU. Armed with a degree from ASU, Carvel took a teaching job at Snowflake Jr. High School where he taught 6th grade for many years and then transitioned to 7th Grade Math and/or Science after the 6th grade was moved from the Jr. High to the Intermediate school campuses. Carvel retired from teaching in 1996, but continued to build and remodel homes while managing several rental properties they had acquired through the years.
Cleone was born to Virgil and Gerda Flake in Snowflake. Virgil was a cattle rancher, and Cleone loved working cattle alongside her dad and brothers. She also loved playing sports, and often still complains that during her time in high school girls were quite limited in participation in sports activities. Every time we watch the current Lady Lobos Basketball Teams play Cleone shares her memories of the girls being limited to playing half court only back in the 1950s.. Regardless, Cleone developed a deadly accurate hook shot that served her well later in life when she needed to humble her much taller sons. Cleone attended college at BYU and ASU, and participated in college rodeo clubs as a barrel racer whenever she could manage to borrow a horse. She and Carvel married while attending school at ASU, and have lived in Taylor and later in Snowflake ever since.
Carvel and Cleone’s eight children all attended Snowflake High School, and watching their children participate in extracurricular activities was one of the highlights of their lives. Brad, Lori, Rob, and Kay were all members of the SHS Orchestra. Brad, Lori, Rob and Sterling are SHS Madrigal Alumni. Nolan and Joe were SHS Band members. Kay, Nolan, Sterling, Joe, and Steve all played football at SHS. Whether it was a concert or play in the auditorium, a football game under the Friday Night lights, or a basketball game or track meet, Cleone and Carvel made time in their busy schedules to enjoy watching their children perform. Most recently they were blessed to witness their two grandsons, Carter and Joshua Solomon, help the Lobos secure the 2020 3A State Football Championship with granddaughter Emma cheering them on as part of the Varsity Cheer Squad, and son Kay coaching from the sidelines. They are a great example of the legacy we continue to build at Snowflake High School and in our great community. We are proud to recognize the Solomons as our honorary Lobo Booster Sponsors for the 2021 season. Go Carvel and Cleone Solomon, and Go Lobos!!!
Dan & Jana Mills
Dan and Jana Mills have been a part of the Snowflake community for many years.

They raised their six children here, all of which have graduated from Snowflake High School: Brian Mills, David Mills, Michelle Kay, Shawna Smith, Scott Mills and Holly Hall.
Dan Mills was born in Mesa, AZ. His parents were long term residents of Pinetop, Show Low and Snowflake. When Dan was in 6th grade his family moved back to Snowflake. Dan loved sports and played baseball, football, and ran track. He along with Norman Flake were quite the duo and they were always up to something. Dan loved to tell stories of his time playing football at Snowflake including the rivalries they shared with other teams on the mountain.
Jana Mills was born in Phoenix and lived in Scottsdale. She was a Howdy Dudette in high school and helped the Chamber of Commerce with events and service-related activities. She went to college at BYU. The couple met in 1970 while both were in high school and later married in 1975 after Dan served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint in the Montana Wyoming Mission. Dan graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in secondary education.
Their family moved to Snowflake in 1979 when Dan started working at Snowflake High School as a special education, graphic arts, and photography teacher. He taught at the high school for 27 years and had a positive impact on thousands of students. He ran the district print shop and assembled the school’s first computer lab. Together Dan and Jan ran Mills Photography and spent countless nights and weekends taking pictures for graduation, school dances, and weddings.
Dan and Jana now have 25 grandchildren, 17 of which are attending or have graduated from Snowflake High School. Dan unexpectedly passed away in December and his presence has been missed not only in his family but in the community as well. Dan and Jana are an example of the legacy we continue to build at Snowflake High School and our community. The memory of Dan will live on through his children, grandchildren, and thousands of others that he impacted in the community. Jana continues today to be a true example of love, faith, and dedicated service to our community.
