Westside’s Student Council hosted the annual Mr. WHS this Wednesday, Dec. 12. Mr. WHS is a male beauty pageant in which junior and senior boys can compete. This year, we had eight contestants that were all seniors. At the end of the competition, Kellen Goc was crowned Mr. WHS.

“I think it’s going to be a good competition. There’s a lot of great guys doing it, so I think it will be a good time,” senior Ethan Goldner said before the show.

One of the main goals is to make money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This foundation is non-profit and arranges wish-like experiences for kids with critical illnesses.

“Student Council fulfills two of its goals with Mr. WHS,” Student Council Co-Sponsor Sara Kleinsasser said. “The first and primary goal is to raise money for Make-A-Wish. However, Mr. WHS also helps to bring the school together before finals week for some much needed stress relief through humor.”

The night lasted about an hour and was filled with many different performances. The show began with introductions and was followed by a series of questions for the contestants. After this, it was the talent portion. There is also a lip sync competition and they finished with a group dance. After that, the judges chose a winner.

“I always believe that traditions are important for any group,” Kleinsasser said. “Mr. WHS is an important tradition for Westside as it is a fun way to bring the students together by putting on an entertaining competition for the enjoyment of their classmates and teachers. In this way, it contributes to a positive and fun learning environment for the students.”
