Mr. OHS crowns Hensel above the rest

Mr. NHS, Drew Hensel took the crown in last Friday’s annual Mr. OHS fundraiser. Hensel proved his talent, casual and formal wear were superior to the 24 other senior competitors. But the real winners are all of the students who set up and hosted the pageant; over $1,000 was raised for the Covenant House – Missouri charity.

This past Friday (April 8), 25 senior boys competed in the annual newspaper-produced Mr. OHS pageant. After several elimination rounds, Drew Hensel (12) came out with the crown.

Hensel, who represented National Honor Society (NHS), won the judges’ and crowd’s approval and was named Mr. OHS at the end of the event. His superb talent performance, classy formal wear and well formulated answers put him ahead of the competition.

Hensel performed a well rehearsed dance routine with two other contestants: Mr. FCA, Eric Lehr (12) and Mr. Senior Exec, Corey Meyer (12). As the final act, the boys did an excellent job wrapping up the talent portion of the show and completely won the hearts of everyone in the audience.

Anthony Gallo (12), Mr. StuCo, also received recognition at the event; he was voted Mr. Popularity by the audience after performing a solo dance routine.

In addition to providing fun and entertainment for OHS, this year’s Mr. OHS pageant raised over $1,050.50 for Covenant House – Missouri, non-profit organization with a mission to help underprivileged youth in the St. Louis area.
