http://www.adisadelcollege.net/forums/forum/styles/subsilver2/imageset/adisco_crest.gifAs part of the preparations for Adisadel's centenary we are looking for the top 100 Santaclausians of all time.

In your opinion who would you pick to be among this list of Santaclausians. The categories are diverse - sports, academics, best homo, best Head Pru, best Headmaster, best in academics, best dressed....you name it...we will categorize the list and possibly have a vote if we end up with more than 100.

Let us hear from you now....the count down has started....

I will start with the following (the list is not in any particular order):

1. Dr. Ave Kludze Jnr. (Hamlyn, 1983) - Snr. NASA Engineer and the first African to command a space craft.
2. Kofi Osei, alias Sasta (Aglionby, 1976) - Track and Field Hockey star in the mid 70's
3. George Enchill, alias Sakina (Ebiradze, 1974) - Former national track and field star.
4. Gen. A. A. A. Afrifa (class of 1952) - First Santaclausian to become Ghana's Head of State in 1969
5. Master David Kofi Nyarko, (2008) - Outstanding academic performance at the WASSCE Exams (8As)
6. R. T. Orleans-Pobee (class of 1944) - Oldest serving Headmaster of the school and the most loved
7. Dr. Daniel Amponsah alias Koo Nimo (class of 1952) - One of Ghana's most talented musicians
