On April 20 Liberty High School’s Leadership Class presented the 20th Annual Mr. Liberty competition. This sold-out show raised over $3,800 for the Student Emergency Relief Fund (SERF).
Mr. Liberty is a tradition of success due to the support of the Liberty community and Brentwood community at large. This event could not have been possible without the support and donations of many local businesses and individuals. On behalf of the Leadership program, I would like to thank the following:
Brentwood Florist & Gifts generously donated all flowers for the evening’s event, including bouquets for the winners, coordinators and crew. Their donation served to lessen the financial strain of our event and for this we are truly grateful!
His and Hers Formal Wear has generously donated the tuxes of the Mr. Liberty contestants for the last six years. The kindness and generosity of Annette Beckstrand and her staff goes above and beyond the expectation throughout the school year, starting from Homecoming on through to this competition.
The Mr. Liberty breakfast was sponsored by Diggers Diner. The management and staff at Diggers opened their doors to us at 7 a.m. and provided an unmatched service and attentiveness. This year they have supported our Homecoming Court, Liberty Idol and Mr. Liberty breakfasts. Diggers Diner is a place of “Lion Pride”!
Finally, we would like to thank the following businesses for their donation of gifts for the various winners within the Mr. Liberty competition. As a result of their donation, we were able to donate all funds raised to the Student Emergency Relief (SERF) Fund. Thank you to RAVE Movie Theaters, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Rubio’s, Safeway, The Game, and Yogurt Pizzazz.
The following individuals and businesses helped to ensure the success of Mr. Liberty 2012. Without their hard work, support and diligence, we would not have had such a positive event. Thank you to Oak Tree Screenprinting for the production of the Mr. Liberty shirts; Prestige Press for the production of the Mr. Liberty tickets and programs; Jennifer Watson at Wonderland Photography, who took the ticket photos; Maddy Benner and Katelyn DiGiorgio, who choreographed the group dance; the Mr. Liberty technical crew, including Sydney Daigre, Brooke Damico, Mo duPee, Zack Friedman, Hanna Johnson, Taylor Kesterson, Clay Krum, Taylor Miller, Kaitlyn Nesbitt, Allie Re and Shelby Rinehart. Finally, I’d like to thank our MCs for the evening: John Romeis and Beth Decker. Accompanied this year by Manny Lopez and Carli Lamb, they made for a seamless show with their quick wit.
I hope that the community of Brentwood enjoyed this year’s Mr. Liberty competition. Because of your support, Liberty High can help students and families during these tough financial times. Thank you!
