When Watertown High students went down to the cafeteria and found gigantic cutouts of faces on the courtyard windows, they it knew it could only mean one thing.

It’s time for Mr. WHS.

For the 18th year running, the Mr. WHS competition will be held in the Shaw Auditorium at Watertown High. Ten students will take to the stage Tuesday, March 20, at 6 p.m. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door.

According to WHS science teacher Amanda Makosky, the competition is a fund-raiser for the Pride Committee. The money raised from the event will go toward scholarships for graduating seniors.

The competition will include formal wear, casual wear, a talent portion, a Q&A Interview, and a rose ceremony. This event is sponsored by Formalwear Limited in Waltham. Mass.

The 10 contestants this year are Ben Landry, Brett Sutherland, Dylan Hickey, Elijah Levy, Gabe Cimino, Hadi Farhat, Jake Matton, Jeremy Herrera, John Korte, and Noah Ferraresso.

“A lot of my friends made jokes about me doing it and I guess I just decided to,” said Dylan, a sophomore.

These contestants will not be alone on stage: WHS senior Cali McMahon and math teacher Mike Spillane will join them as hosts. Though it’s Cali’s first time hosting, it’s Mr. Spillane’s second year.

“It is an interesting sight to see students try to be funny and see them participate in fun events,” he said. “The whole event is very fun and is very fun to host.”

The event is a fun school tradition. Jessica DePamphilis, an English teacher who graduated from WHS in 2007, said, “It’s always been the same, even when I was still in the high school.”
