Mr. Miner celebrates talent, technology, and school spirit

PARK CITY, Utah. — A COVID-safe, partially virtual Mr. Miner pageant saw six Park City High School seniors pulling out all the stops Friday night to convince voters and judges that they were deserving of the Mr. Miner title – and the position’s sash and (fake) jewel-encrusted helmet.

With backup from the PCHS Dance Company and plenty of assistants and musicians, the six contestants embraced this year’s theme, Men of Movies, with character portrayals along with elements in their performances that had absolutely nothing to do with movies. Which worked: each of the guys entertained and impressed audiences during dance numbers, modeling sessions, talent exhibitions, and question and answer segments.

Congratulations to this year’s winner, Slade Schemmer, and runners-up Max O’Reily and Jonathan Mount, who tied, and PCHS teachers/co-emcees Kyle Fish and Krischelle Hansen. Fish teaches film and Hansen teaches drama and theater – the right people for the job.
