Spirit squad boosters hosted their annual Mr. CV fundraiser on Friday, April 6 and Major Greene won the titular title of “Mr. CV.” The fundraiser is a satirical pageant show in which a select group of boys from the senior class perform talents to be judged by Castro Valley community members.
In addition to Greene, Andy Jerome, Lennart Richter, Nolan Keating, and Caleb Castaneda made it to the final round. Kyle Bales won People’s Choice award, Conner Kincaid won Mr. Congeniality, and Andy Jerome won first runner up.
“I had a blast with my fellow seniors, not stressing about school and just having a fun night. It made me get out of my comfort zone and was one of the many amazing events held at CVHS!” said Jerome.
The boys were escorted by senior girls, most being cheerleaders. Each donned a stunning gown or sharp suit. Suits were donated by Men’s Wearhouse and Casablanca Bridal and Tuxedo.
The night consisted of admirably choreographed dance routines, funny skits, promposals, and audience sing-alongs. The group of seniors brought incredible amounts of spirit and energy to their performances.
“Mr. CV was truly the most fun I’ve had at CVHS and an experience to remember forever,” said Keating.
The seniors rehearsed throughout the week prior to performing. Rehearsals, although purposeful, were reason for the diverse group of seniors to bond.
Emcees Alexandro Olvera and Alex Kwan kept the audience entertained between performances with hilarious bits and jokes. Kwan even brought up CVHS alumni and former Mr. CV emcee Matt Betti.
The event would not have been possible without the hard work and planning of event coordinators and spirit team moms Kelly Schroeder, Karen Johnston, and Michele Nicol.
Mr. CV is yet another demonstration of the spirit and support of the Castro Valley community.
