Will Zellner named Mr. NDA

Senior Will Zellner was named Mr. NDA for this year’s Academy Awards.

Zellner was one of nine contestants competing to wear the crown in the 25th edition of this annual event, which was presented this year as a series of video presentations during advisory periods before a live Q&A session was streamed using Zoom on April 16.

Junior Jack Fitzgerald was voted first runner-up and senior Thomas Zakowski was named the second runner-up.

Zellner also received the distinction of being named Mr. Congeniality, which is an honor voted on by the contestants for the individual who was the most helpful in preparing for the event.

Other contestants for the Academy Awards this year were Tola Adejumo, Seth Baeten, Joey Bonadonna, Cooper Bukowski, Will Drake and Jacob Massart.

Senior Owen Campbell, last year’s Mr. NDA, awarded Zellner with this year’s crown.
