Andre Greene '22 Commits to The University of North Carolina
The Saints community gathered last night to celebrate the event.
We're so proud of Andre Greene '22, who committed to The University of North Carolina last night. We're also grateful for our dedicated Saints community. The energy on campus last night was incredible, and we can't thank everyone enough for being on campus to show their support. The event also saw a unique connection between the arts and athletics. After signing autographs, Greene revealed a painting of himself wearing Tar Heel blue created by Kyan Patel '23, an exceptional StC artist.
Patel came up with the idea months ago. "Over the summer I kept working on it," he said. "Then in the last week, he told me where he was going to go."
Keeping the secret was hard, but Patel kept quiet about the news and completed the painting in time for the commitment event. "We've been good friends for the last three or four years," said Patel. "The painting was a gift to him. I'm just happy he trusted me to keep the secret, especially on a big day like that."
