Hawthorne High School’s Mr. Hawthorne talent show is on March 2 at 7:30 PM in the HHS auditorium. The Clarion sat down with each of the contestants to get a chance to see what they think of the show and their chances to take the Mr. Hawthorne crown. They have been working day and night practicing their killer routines and are prepared to dazzle the crowds with their charm. We got the inside scoop on first time contestant, Tom Gallo.


Clarion Reporter: What are some things that you are a part of at HHS?

Tom Gallo: I’m a part of student council and I think class cabinet *clears throat* I do a few different things.


Clarion Reporter: Why did you decide to do Mr. Hawthorne?

Tom Gallo: I live by this motto-“keep your friends close but your enemies closer” and there’s no better way to keep Rocco closer than to humiliate myself alongside him in front of 800 people.


Clarion Reporter: Do you think you will win? What do you think of your competition? Who do you think is your biggest competitor?

Tom Gallo: No, but I’ll probably beat Nick Manzi.


Clarion Reporter: Tell us something about yourself that you want the audience at Mr. Hawthorne and the Hawthorne community to know.

Tom Gallo: I somehow gained ten pounds training for Mr. Hawthorne.


Good luck Tom!
