Mr. Boyertown Winner Casts a Spell on Audience

The annual fundraiser event, Mr. Boyertown, was different this year in that a junior — Colin Brisbois — took the title.

One of nine contestants, Colin won by impressing the judges with a magic show.

Junior Brendan Hannum, who watched the show, said Colin deserved to win.

“He had clean humor, awesome stage presence and all around he was great,” he said. “The magic gimmick was genius.”

Colin said he enjoyed the competition.

“This was one of the best times I’ve had at the high school,” he said on Instagram after taking the crown, also thanking everyone who had helped him prepare.

He was one of nine contestants for the annual event, which raises money for Mini-THON to go to Four Diamonds, an organization that supports kids who have cancer and their families. The event raised $ 2323.24, said Student Council Advisor Mr. Jeff Kusniez.

This year, juniors were allowed to compete because there were not enough senior candidates. Some dropped out because of the time commitment.

The main competition category was a talent show. Colin’s talent was magic. Everyone thought he was standing on the stage, but then he suddenly appeared in the back of the theater.
“I was like, wow that’s cool,” said Nicole Yacovelli.

Contestants also did a little dance, had a teacher “mentor” read a humorous small biography on them, and made a video revealing silly “secrets” they had.

The judges were Vice Principal Mr. Andrew Maoury, local business owner Mrs. Wood, Junior Abbey Reigner and last year’s Mr. Boyertown, Jordan Groff.
