Editor: On behalf of the Leadership class of Liberty High School, I would like to thank the Brentwood community and some very outstanding local businesses and individuals for their support of this year’s Mr. Liberty competition. The show, held on April 19, 2019, raised over $4,300 for the Mr. Liberty Scholarship fund, the proceeds of which go to Liberty students who have shown extraordinary leadership, or who have overcome difficult situations over their last four years.
I would like to publicly thank:
Brentwood Florist & Gifts has consistently been a huge support to the Liberty Leadership program, generously donating flowers for Homecoming, Liberty Idol and Mr. Liberty over the last decade. We were able to honor the evening’s winner, technical crew and organizers with beautiful floral donations from Brentwood Florists & Gifts. They truly exemplify what it means to give back to one’s community.
We would also 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 donations, we were able to donate all funds raised to the scholarship fund. Thank you to: Big House Beans, Cinelux Delta Cinema, Harvest Park Bowl, Mt. Mike’s Pizza, QuickStop, Togos, and Yogurt Pizazz. The winners surely appreciation your generosity!
The following individuals helped to ensure the success of Mr. Liberty 2019. Without their hard work, support and diligence, we would not have had such a positive event. Thank you to: Hanna Burns, Ava Partida, Delaney Sorenson, Abby Warner and Ashley Zeigler, who choreographed and taught the group dance; and the Mr. Liberty technical crew, including: Molly Brodowski, Payton Homer, Gabby Carreon, Jordan Walters, Logan Maher, Sammy Taylor, Tate Watkins-Nelson, Caden Lewis, Emily Eaton, Thomas Sudweeks, Morgan Rajala, Beki Rivera and Olivia Tse!
Mr. Liberty has been around for over 25 years and has only been able to do so with the support of the Brentwood community and Brentwood businesses. I cannot thank them enough for their generosity of spirit, but I am truly grateful.
