Jake Mulready, Nuami Lam Tung named Mr. and Miss JHS
Jenks High School did not allow the COVID-19 pandemic stop it from putting on the Mr. and Miss JHS program.
The annual program took place Thursday in a virtual setting with thousands of viewers tuning in from their homes on the Jenks High School Facebook page.
There were five finalists each for both Mr. and Miss JHS. All 10 finalists are members of the Class of 2020.
The winners of the annual event were Jake Mulready and Nuami Lam Tung. The two will each receive scholarships from Jostens Graduate Services and forever carry the Mr. and Miss JHS Class of 2020 title.
According to Jenks High School Principal David Beiler, the final decisions were made based on volunteer hours, school and club activities, grade-point-average, teacher recommendation and senior class vote.
Sam Mulready, Jake’s older brother said during the video that Jake is a person of high character, always has a positive attitude and will always get right back up no matter what happens to him.
Jordan Johnson, Nuami’s teacher said during the video that Nuami’s smile lights up the room and that she has overcome a lot in her life. Johnson also said Nuami has an unbelievable work ethic, is very involved in the community and inspires and empowers everyone around her.
The other finalists for Mr. and Miss JHS were Avery Acord, Kennedy Fox, Caroline Henry, Gum Aung, Andrew Carter, William Cox and Mark Mills.
Mark Mills and Kennedy Fox were the runner-up vote getters.
The Jenks Tribune will soon publish features articles on the two winners.
