Last night the Cox Theater held the annual Mr. NECC pageant.  The pageant is held every year during homecoming week at Northeast.  The Mr. NECC pageant features men acting and dressing as women from different activity groups competing in four pageant rounds including: introduction, evening wear, talent and questions.

This year, the Mr. NECC pageant was attended by over 220 people, featured eight contestants and was emceed by Tyrel Whalen.

The judges of the pageant were Stephanie Brundieck, a counselor in student services; Anthony Faust, an advisor and recruiter; and Dr. Karen Severson, Vice President of student services.  Last night was a tough competition with close scores and a hard decision for the judges to make.

In the end, Ian Webster of the RASA team received fourth place.  Third place was received by Michael McCarthy of SGA.  This was the first year that the Vet Tech group competed in the pageant and they did well with Loren Peterson being a crowd favorite and receiving second place.  This year’s Mr. NECC is Jordan Merchant who represented the Student Activities Council.  This is also the first year SAC has won a Mr. NECC pageant. 

Merchant’s talent is what won him over as he directed the Double Dream Hands dance.  The dance wouldn’t be the same without a leotard, so that’s just what Jordan Merchant donned for his talent dance.

To see pictures and videos of this event, its contestants and their cross-dressing outfits, check out the Northeast Community College Student Activities Council page on facebook!
