Mr. Cleveland is a title given to a student that exemplifies school spirit and pride. About 100 spectators turned out to watch five contestants compete to be the next face of CHS. Sophomore Alfred Escorpiso; junior Allanjay Freeman; and seniors Kent Salinas, Tyvon Tabadero and Coi Tran all took the stage vying for the top spot.

Teachers Susannah Woehr, Bryan Gordon and Evin Shinn served as judges for the show and said they had a hard time choosing a winner. The contestants were put through a variety of stages to help them narrow down the pool to the top three. Whether it was contestants showing off their best pick-up lines or rocking the stage with amazing talent, the crowd was obviously entertained.

All of the contestants showed great talent and spirit during the show, but ultimately it was Tabadero was chosen as Mr. Cleveland 2014.

“I joined Mr. Cleveland to have fun,” Tabadero said. “Winning wasn’t really on my mind. It was a good experience overall.”

Coi Tran and Kent Salinas took second and third place, respectively. Seniors Abdi Aden and Jayde Christopher served as hosts for the event.
