Jared Love is Mr. Brea-shown with his crown and with a group of students.

Jared Love was named  Mr. Brea in a pageant similar to the Miss America Pageant held at the Brea Olinda High School Performing Arts Center on 12-12-12. Physics teacher Phil Henderson was named teacher Mr.  Brea. Derek Anderson, senior, and Jonathan Gunther, history teacher, were both crowned Mr. Brea 2012 runner-ups.

ASB was in charge of the event chaired by the 2012 Associated Student Body/Fine Arts Commissioner Anna Blaho. Her theme for  Mr. Brea 2012 was “Men of America.” The new Mr. Brea and teacher Mr. Brea were both crowned by a former teacher Mr. Brea, Jonathan Quiming.
 Jared sang and played the guitar with a performance of “Then” for his talent accompanied by his band. He said the pageant was more work than he expected, but had a great time. His first love is baseball.  His favorite food is black and blu steak.  Jared  said it was awesome making friends with people in the pageant that he would not have met otherwise.

Phil Henderson also showcased his musical talents by singing an Irish folk song while his dog Woody sat by his side. Phil said he participated in the first Teacher Mr. Brea contest in 1992. He noted all the guys were so creative this year.
Other contestants in the fun to watch pageant included Men of America: Jacob Elais, Izzy Perez, Craig Patton, Joshua Vizcayz, Samuel Cho, Jonathan Davis, and Jason Muehloff. Other teachers: Matt Sorenson, Jonathan Gunter, and Omar Barcenas.
