On Friday, March 13th, many of James River’s gentlemen gathered in the theatre to compete for the Mr. James River crown. The competitors showcased their talents by dancing, singing, playing an instrument and many other acts. The proceeds benefitted the John Titus Scholarship, and was Liz Candler’s Capstone project. The winner of the pageant was junior Noah Blevins, who twirled glow “strings” as his talent. Check out our photo gallery below!
