Five students to compete for Mr. WHS title
Four seniors, one sophomore to take Watertown High School stage on Thursday at 7 p.m.
This Thursday, March 27 at 7 p.m., the 12th Mr. WHS competition will take place in Watertown High’s Shaw Auditorium. This year’s contestants are Erik Antonellis, Michael Stinehart, Patrick Dawson, Eric Tirrell, and Ryan Clancy will make huge fools of themselves. Clancy, a sophomore, is the only non-senior competing.
Antonellis, who considers himself the favorite said, “My competition is pretty solid. A lot of talent in this group of kids, but my only actual competition is Stinehart. Kid has a lot of heart and will do whatever he needs to do to get the win.”
There are many different components to the competition, such as a talent portion, a question-and-answer period, and modeling casual wear.
Tickets for the event are $6, and kids are free. Money raised will go to the WHS Pride Committee, which is made up of students from all grades. According to faculty supervisor Andrew Allegro, the money will be used for future events, such as pep rallies.
Concessions will be available with funds raised going to the WHS Social Network and Social Butterflies groups for their end-of-the-year activities.
Could another senior be wearing the crown or will it be the youngster with the surprise. It will all be determined on Thursday night.
