On Friday, February 24, Marmion Academy's Student Council along with the Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Program will host Mr. Marmion, a mock talent/beauty show to benefit charity. Three members from each class will compete in four different events and a panel of faculty and student judges will determine who will win the coveted 2017 Mr. Marmion crown. Various students will also showcase talents throughout the evening.

All proceeds will be donated to Ava's Warriors - a local organization that is supporting a Batavia girl who is fighting a courageous battle against a brain tumor.
