StuCo held its fourth annual Mr. Mill Valley fundraiser on Wednesday, March 20. Junior Cline Boone won the competition, while senior Steven Colling came in as runner-up.

Seven students competed in the event: juniors Nathan Greenfield, Ben Stove and Boone and seniors Blake Aerni, Zach Bossert, Colling and Henry Lopez.

The competition consisted of five separate portions: spirit wear, talent, poem, formal wear and questions. This year’s event was “The Bachelor” themed, including a rose ceremony.

Some of the talents included: Boone singing a “High School Musical” song, Greenfield running the pacer test while telling dad jokes, Stove recreating a Bob Ross painting, Aerni singing a “Spongebob” duet with senior Noah Smith, Bossert singing a different “Spongebob” song while playing the piano and making a peanut butter sandwich, Colling washing a toy truck and Lopez catching grapes in his mouth.

Although Boone did not have a set strategy for the event, he knew he would have to do well due to the high competition level.

“I took a look at all of my amazing opponents and knew I had to bring my best stuff,” Boone said. “And that’s what I did tonight.”

Lopez believes that Boone was the rightful winner and that Boone’s talent section, where he brought his cat on stage to read her an original poem, was a crowd pleaser.

“I think Cline won because he had a beautiful voice and he did a very good job with the poem bringing the cat out. It wowed the audience,” Lopez said. “[It was] well deserved.”

All proceeds of the event will be donated to a charity of the winner’s choosing. Boone chose Relay for Life of Jaguar Nation.

“I chose Relay because I’ve had a grandma that’s been affected by cancer,” Boone said. “It’s something we need to find a cure for.”
