Every year around the end of winter, the Eisenhower High School Journalism Club sponsors a competition to find Mr. EHS. Contestants compete in a variety of challenges including describing why they would make a good Mr. EHS, answering a formal question while wearing their formal wear, flexing their muscles in a muscle contest, and demonstrating their best or funniest talent. The competition is judged by three or four judges and the winner and runner ups get certificates and prizes. The cost of the show is $4.00 but is well worth the price. Plus, the $4.00 helps journalism to pay for field trips and new equipment. If talent shows and comedic sketches entertain you, then stop by and enjoy the show.
To get the inside scoop on this year’s competition, The Squire sat down with senior Brodie Whitney. At last year’s show, he was awarded runner up after wrestling with Big Foot. This year, he is going for that first place prize once again. He said that he was preparing for the show by doing multiple sets of squat thrusts, along with hunting for building materials. When asked why he chose to compete, he responded by saying, “I was in 2nd place last year, and this is my last chance to be King.” If he wins, he plans to hit them with a dab and cry a little. He also believes that a good Mr. EHS is someone with good grades and school spirit, as well as someone who is not afraid to be an idiot on stage. Finally, when asked why he would make a good Mr. EHS, he answered that he meets the qualifications above.
So, if you are looking for some entertainment, consider stopping by at Eisenhower and watching the annual Mr. EHS show on Thursday, February 21, at 7 pm! Stay tuned to W-IKE news and The Squire’s social media pages for updates on the contest and the winner.
