On the night of February 8th, nine contestants from various McCombs student organizations came together to compete for the title of “Mr. McCombs.” Mr. McCombs is a male beauty pageant that raises money and canned goods for charity. The contestants choose the charity of their choice to give to, upon winning, and the canned goods are given to the Capital Area food bank. The Daily Texan and Good Morning Texas provided coverage for the event.
After dancing, dressing up in their finest suits and swimwear and showcasing their talents, Isoken Omoruyi, the Asian Business Student Association rep, came out with the crown. Isoken’s high spirits and self-composed song he performed with an accompanying band propelled him to the top and allowed him to stand out to the judges. Conrad Bates, of the Undergraduate Business Council, won the title of “Mr. Congeniality.” The event rose over $750 dollars, which will be donated to the House of Amos in Houston, and more than 4000 cans, which will be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank.
