Two Ambridge Area School District graduates gave back to the community by donating backpacks and supplies to Highland Elementary.
The 14th Annual Mr. Ambridge Pageant was held on Thursday evening at the high school auditorium. The competition raised more than $3,000 for the McGuire Memorial Home.
Jacob Dunlap was crowned winner of the 2019 pageant, and was also named the show's "Best Talent" for his piano performance. Thomas Holcomb was named first runner-up, and Corey Shaffer won enough votes from the audience to be named "Mr. Congeniality."
The show was a senior project by Lydia Ciani and Marissa Hooks. Dunlap and Holcomb, the show's cash winners, donated their prizes back to the McGuire Memorial Home, as did the winner of the 50/50 drawing.
