Trevor Forbis, a senior, was crowned Mr. Northside at the annual pageant May 12 at the schools Ray Horne Theater for the Performing Arts.
He will be attending South Georgia College in the fall on a swimming scholarship. Along with being captain of the Northside High School swim team for the past two years, Trevor was involved in FCA, Partners Club and DECA while at Northside High.
Being part of the Partners Club which is an organization that helps out with our special needs students was incredible, Trevor said. They dont have cliques or judge anybody, they just are accepting and want to have a good time.
To win Mr. Northside, Trevor went through a similar process that female pageant contestants go through including talent and interview.
But while the process was similar, the participation was a very different.
Not encumbered by needing their hair or nails done the afternoon of the pageant, the Mr. Northside contestants decided to spend the afternoon together.
We had already had a run through practice, Trevor said, and had taken all our stuff to the school. Only thing left was to throw a little gel in the hair and we would be good.
So Trevor and his fellow contestants spent the afternoon together relaxing.
We are all friends and knew that ultimately regardless of who won, it wouldnt change anything, Trevor said. We would still be friends.
Originally scheduled for March, the pageant was pushed back, which means Trevor will have a two-week reign while enrolled at Northside High.
But even after he graduates next week, Trevor plans to be involved as Mr. Northside.
I will come back for things, Trevor said, but I would come back even if I wasnt Mr. Northside. This is a school that is deep in tradition and being Mr. Northside just adds to the greatness of the Northside tradition.
