 (Maricopa) On Friday, April 6, 2018, eleven senior guys showcased their best beachwear, talent, and formal wear in a battle to become the first ever Mr. MHS. The grand prize winner not only received the title of Mr. MHS, but also two tickets to prom and a free tailored suit from Nick's Menswear. A committee of eight Student Council members has been working since November fine-tuning the details of this event, and the guys have been practicing since February. Raffle baskets were awarded to audience members, and the guys had a chance to also be awarded for the Penny Wars challenge (proceeds to benefit Children's Miracle Network) and for the 'People's Choice' award. Judge and English teacher Aidan Balt said, "The guys have set the bar very high for next year". Alonso Chavez won the Penny Wars challenge. Jalen Reyes won 'People's Choice' and was also the second runner up overall. Caleb Wilson was the first runner up. Patrick Flint, aka 'That Yo-Yo Kid' was crowned the first ever Mr. MHS. He stated that in all his high school career, he never imagined competing on stage this way, as he is an introvert.
