Ms. and Mr. Marcus Garvey Technical High School 2017
“Unearthing Your Inner Beauty” was the theme for our pageant 2017 and indeed we did reveal or “dig up” numerous inner beauty by cutting across gender as it was also the debut for the staging of our Mr. and Miss Marcus. Hence, for the first time in the school’s history we had males vying for the crown of Mr. Marcus. The competition kicked start with a photo shoot that was judged by the school’s population and the social media. The contestants competed in various segments. These included cultural, recycled clothing, sports and formal wear. The competition itself was of a very high standard as competitors brought their A game. However, Samantha Smith (Bat Woman) topped the female photo shoot while Tajae McAnnuff walked away with the top votes for the males. Brandy Hopkins- Little Red Riding Hood was crowned queen while Samoya Johnson and Jamila Johnson were first and second runners up respectively. Jason McDougal – Grim Reaper had his name “engraved” in history by becoming the school’s first Mr. Marcus and Shakeem Ellis and Imani Ashley were the first and second runner up.
