With a “Jungle Love” theme, the fantasy style show served as a canvas for students to express their creativity through hair, makeup and clothing.

The Machekas took first place at this year’s annual event. Their team was led by senior Captain Mariza Uvalle. Miah Lopez served as the model for the team. Other team members were Amy Jimenez, April Salinas, Ashley Salinas, and Leseth Vasquez.

Second place went to the Lion Queendom. Senior Aneth Anaya served as team captain of the group and Selene Salinas served as the model. Other team members were Maria Lopez, Miriam Reyes, Mariela Garcia, Tyya Brooks, and Eclesia Webb.

Third place went to the Cheetah Girls, led by senior Captain Maria Galvan. Kaleigh Chandler served as the team model. Other team members included Montasia Holland, Myra Lopez, Murela Hernandez, Lexsandra Arteaga.

The work for each show was prepared entirely by the students. After choosing a model, each group was responsible for hair, makeup, and clothing, as well as all costumes and props for their show. Each group presented their jungle themed showcase to the audience as well as to a panel of judges during the event. The students were also recognized at the event and received their awards at the annual High School Awards Program held on Wednesday, April 25.

Mistress of ceremonies Etta Ebbs, Lead Instructor at Evvaylois (formerly known as EdVance Academy School of Beauty), entertained the audience between shows with facts about the cosmetology school. The audience also enjoyed words of wisdom from school administrators and a variety of musical entertainment.

Overall the show was a huge success and the students are already looking forward to next year.
