Thursday marked the 28th Mr. Muskie pageant in the Bradley Theatre. Among the six contestants, Airiss Hargrow, senior sports management major, was named Mr. Muskie 2016. Cedric Logan, sophomore sports management and mathematics major, was named runner up.

Other contestants were Jody Harrison, junior communications major, Aaron Almedina, senior marketing major, C.J. Milliron, sophomore business management major and Donte Rowell, junior sports management major.

The night’s emcee was Tyler Boeh, a stand-up comedian with a beat box twist. He has a background in improv and a passion for writing. Boeh kept the audience laughing while contestants prepared for each round.

Judges for the competition were David Simon, director of campus safety and security, Leslie Laster, director of student athlete development, Karin Miofsky, assistant professor of criminal justice and Josh Hardy, football wide receivers coach.

The competition has been a part of homecoming tradition since 1989. Rounds include formal wear, a questions and answers portion, talent, swim wear and “When I grow up.”

Mr. Muskie kicked off the homecoming festivities on Thursday, Sept. 29 and runs through Saturday, Oct. 1. Watch The Mirror for more weekend coverage. For a complete list of events, click here to check them out in the Weekly Outlook.
