Junior Jess Wilsensky held off ten other handsome and talented young men to win the coveted "Mr. St. Johns" title at the February 25 event held in the school’s Performing Arts Center. In charge of organizing the entire event, the chair, Caroline Robbins, and co-chair, Ellen Crist, chose "Mr. St. Johns Hits the Beach" for this year's theme. The guys entertained the audience competing in casual wear, lip sync, and formal wear. Luke Dill was the first runner-up, Garrett Hays was the second runner-up, Cole Ferguson was the third runner-up, and Drew Petty was the fourth runner-up. Other contestants included Ryan Lindholm, John Stribling, Joe Capps, Madison Duff, Collin Hudson, and Trey Teahan.
The Mr. St. Johns contest is sponsored by the Interact Club and proceeds go to benefit Relay for Life/American Cancer Society. This year's total was $1,762.00.
The event was hosted by Franklin Ritch and reigning Miss St. Johns, Loni Taylor.
