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. Track star, Laith Matari, sat down with us and answered the questions we were all dying to ask.

 

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

Laith Matari: If the question was what I wasn’t a part of in HHS then the answer would be relatively short. Sooooo I’ll spare you from reading a response similar in length to the Harry Potter books. To summarize, I’m a part of too many clubs and too many sports.

 

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

Laith Matari: I decided to do Mr. Hawthorne because I see the amount of physical contact in it with the other competitors and I couldn’t resist not doing it.

 

Clarion Reporter: Do you think you will win?

Laith Matari: Will I win…. would I like to win? Of course. Will I win? That’s up to the judges and their word to take the bribe I gave them.

 

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

Laith Matari: I think there is very solid competition this year. From the array of splendid acts and the wide spread ability of some to move their bodies in ways I’ve only seen in the movies. I think Aidan Harmer is my biggest competition. He is just so long and such a handsome boy.

 

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

Laith Matari: I’d like the community to know that I hope they enjoy this show very much because a lot went into putting this show together. There is a handful of people who volunteer their own time to make this show successful and without them it would not be possible. I’d also like to take a moment to acknowledge the contestants for juggling so many other activities in HHS while putting in 100% effort for this show. Thank you Ms. Russo, Mr. Lagrone and Mr. Jandoli for being great advocates of this show and keeping its legacy alive. SO ENJOY THE SHOW!

 

Good luck Laith!
