StuCo is hosting the first annual Mr. MV competition on Monday, Feb. 9. Mr. MV is a pageant in which six junior and senior boys will compete for the title of Mr. MV. The pageant will be held in the Little Theater at 6:30 p.m.

During the pageant, candidates will compete in three categories:

Evening wear — candidates will model clothing similar to what they would wear to Homecoming.

Mill Valley wear — candidates will model clothing that represents sports, activities and clubs they are involved in.

Q-and-A — candidates will be asked a question regarding the improvement of the school or society.

Tickets cost $2 in advance and can be purchased at lunch on Friday, Feb. 6 and Monday, Feb. 9. Students can also purchase tickets at the door for $3. All funds will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

This year, StuCo members chose the boys who will compete (listed below), but in the future, students will nominate candidates.

Mr. MV nominees:

Senior Chase Battes

Junior Rohit Biswas 

Senior Kyle Foley

Junior Chase Midyett

Junior Tyler Shurley

Senior Max Talley

Being one of the first to be able to compete in Mr. MV, Talley is looking forward to kicking off the tradition.

“I think it’s going to be a neat experience. I’m looking forward to hopefully raising a decent sum of money for [LLS],” Talley said. “It feels really awesome to be nominated for Mr. MV and I think it’ll be a great experience — certainly one I’ll remember for a long time.”

For student body secretary Shelby Hudson, seeing the idea of Mr. MV come to life is exciting. The pageant was Hudson’s idea and proposal, and she has since been a major part in its development.

“My cousin’s [school] does it every year and I thought it would be a good idea [for us to do] too and that it could be my big thing I do for StuCo,” Hudson said. “[I’m most looking forward to] the guys competing. They’re all awesome and I think it will attract a pretty good crowd.”

Senior class vice president Katie Carson, who has been planning the pageant alongside Hudson, is also looking forward to seeing the final product.

“I hope it gives students some entertainment during that kind of dead week we have when nothing’s going on. They can come and be entertained and laugh because it’s going to be funny, not serious,” Carson said. “I also hope that we’re able to raise a good chunk of money for LLS and make a difference. Hopefully, it will be successful so we can do it in future years.”
