Proud to be an SHS Grizzly

Proud to be an SHS Grizzly

Last Saturday evening I had the pleasure of attending the Mr. SHS Pageant at Sunnyside High School. This program was the finest event I have witnessed in my 10 years of teaching at SHS.

The gentlemen were outstanding and the purpose of the evening was clear-an event to raise awareness and money ($8,500) for the Children's Miracle Network.

Over the past few months these gentlemen, and the leadership class, have raised money, visited hospitals and spent time with families that have benefited from this compassionate organization. I would like to commend the gentlemen, the leadership class and their teacher, Dave Martinez, for a wonderful event and for showing the community what kind of students are at our school.

I am proud to call myself a Grizzly.

SHS pageant fantastic event

The Mr. SHS Pageant was fantastic. The boys kept everyone entertained. There were plenty of laughs and even a few tears. But mostly there was a great appreciation for a group of young men who stepped out of their comfort zone for a great cause.

Sef Amaro said it best when he answered that it was all about helping a group of kids in need. And help they did. They raised more than $8,500 for Children's Village and the neo-natal unit of Memorial Hospital.

I'm very proud of Tyler (Carpenter) for being crowned Mr. SHS, but Manuel, Dane, Zach, Roberto, Sef, Zeke, Levi and Bill are ALL winners, and we're lucky to have such fine young men living in our community. Hopefully, their example will inspire others to take the time to do something positive for others.

Mr. Martinez and the Mr. SHS coordinators (Vanessa, Veronica, Becky, Marissa and Victoria) did an excellent job of putting on this event and hopefully it will be something that will continue for years to come.

Thanks to all who were involved in this wonderful show.

Cabaret licenses good for S'side

Congratulations to the Sunnyside City Council members who voted for the recent cabaret licensing. Creating noise pollution violates personal property lines, property value, quality of life, and, yes personal health. It is a source of degradation of homes and ultimately can promote crime in neighborhoods.

As persons enter our community who do not value the common courtesy of being a "good neighbor," we need to rely upon our elected officials to protect one of the greatest investments a family makes-their home.

Thank you Theresa (Hancock), Ed (Prilucik), Jim (Restucci) and Bill (Gant).

/s/ Jim Stevens, Sunnyside
