NHS to hold Mr. Wildcat tonight

Isabelle Keever, Copy Editor

NHS will host Mr. Wildcat, a fundraiser in which male seniors compete in a pageant to win scholarships, tonight.

This year’s theme is ‘Boys of Summer,’ and the contestants will perform a dance choreographed by some Silver Stars members at the beginning.

Open to all senior boys, there are 24 competitors, each accompanied by two escorts. The pageant includes beachwear and formal-wear categories, and then the Top Ten will be selected by the panel of judges, including Superintendent Martha Salazar-Zamora. Those in the Top Ten will then display their talents in the talent portion, and then the Top Five will answer questions from NHS sponsor Tancy Juliano. The judges will then decide the winner and runners-up.

Each contestant had to decorate a cake for auction, which audience members may bid on during the show.

Coach Kendrick Broady will emcee the event, and theatre will run the technical aspects of the show.
