8th Annual Lion King Contest Scheduled for May 30th

by Bruce Jennings on May 19, 2014

The Lions of Bremen won’t be sleeping on Fri., May 30. 

“The 8th Annual Lion King Contest is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. in the Bowen Auditorium, and it is sure to provide great entertainment for those who attend,” said Bremen High School Principal Bruce Jennings. 

Tickets are $5.00 at the door, and all proceeds are given to a local non-profit group chosen by the contestants.

“Our community is so supportive of the school; however, it’s neat to see the students organizing an event to give back to the community,” Jennings said.  “The eleven young men have already enjoyed the social aspect of preparing for the contest.  They actually have a lot of fun while earning money in a short period of time for a lot of worthy causes.”

“Sometimes the students surprise their peers, and their relatives, with the talent that they have chosen to perform,” Jennings continued.  “The show is family friendly.  I tell the guys to make their legacy something positive.”

This year, Class of 2014 member Miss Sara Slabaugh will be co-emceeing with one of her teachers, Mr. Kyle Hanyzewski.  The contestants from the Distinguished Young Women Program of Bremen High School will also be helping with the event both on and off stage.
