Mr. MHS proves no shortage of talent in Bay Area
COOS BAY, ORE - The 14th Annual Mr. MHS Pageant took on a patriotic theme this year, with the title "Born in the USA." But it was obvious from the beginning of the show it could also have been called America's Got Talent-Coos Bay edition.

Once again a group of boys from this year's Senior class put on their fundraising hats and went to work to raise money for the Share Bear Snack Pack Program, which is run out of Oregon Coast Community Action. The program provides weekend meals to the children in the school's who would otherwise go hungry.

The fundraising effort culminates with the pageant, complete with a patriotic themed child escort segment, an interview segment, and more, but it was the talent segment that really stole the show.

In the end, Dustin Parkhurst won the title, but the glory must be shared by all, as they raised ten-thousand dollars and did it in a tough economy. The money is enough, they said at the show, to help the Snack Pack Program expand to help more students at one more school next year.
