SHS Pageant contestants hosted a pie-in-the-face fundraiser earlier this month. A pasta feed fundraiser is next up. Proceeds support Sisters Family Access Network.

The Sisters High School (SHS) Pageant is a series of fundraisers to raise money for Sisters Family Access Network (FAN). 

The pageant was previously known as Mr. SHS as a spoof pageant for male students and their escorts. Last year the name was changed to SHS Pageant to be more inclusive and make the pairs a collaborative duo.

The SHS Pageant is currently supervised by teacher Jami Lyn Weber and four student coordinators, Holly Davis, Ella Eby, Jack Turpen, and Jordan Velikonia. Each year the staff at SHS selects a number of students from the senior class who have expressed total participation within studies, school spirit, and extracurriculars. Once the students are selected, they get paired with one other student to put together a show based on the theme.

This year the contestant pairs are Juhree Kizziar and Justin deSmet, Charlotte Seymour and Bryant Leaver, Brooke Blakelock and Ted Stolasz, Blake Parker and Teague Wessel, Katie Buller and Dylan Rundle, Autumn Linville and Logan Ryba, and Sienna Jones and Timber Bionda.

The theme that the group selected this year is "The Outlaws on Broadway." Within this theme the contestants choose a musical to conduct a talent, interview, video, and dance for their overall performance.

On Tuesday, February 6, the group held a pie-in-the-face fundraiser event. It took place during senior night of the boys basketball game, where people paid up to $5 to pie the contestants in the face. Coming up on Saturday, February 17, will be a pasta feed, which is held at Sisters Community Church at 5 p.m. Attendees pay $8 for a pasta dinner cooked and served by the contestants. After the meal there will be a dessert auction for a series of treats also made by the contestants. Additionally, the pageant itself will be held April 20, at SHS.

The pageant has been working with FAN for a number of years and has helped many people who are in need of basic materials. All of the pageant proceeds go to FAN to help them accomplish their goal of offering guidance and possibility to Central Oregon families who struggle to provide crucial resources needed to flourish as a family. Because of FAN,

8,000 families' lives are impacted in our community each year.

The contestants, coordinators, and Miss Jami Lyn come together for three months to dedicate their time toward volunteer work to make the fundraisers and pageant happen. Their efforts raise thousands of dollars each year for FAN.
