The University of Arkansas Little Rock’s Chancellor’s Leadership Corp [CLC] hosted a talent show Thursday night to support a good cause.

“The event is part of our reach 13K goal for the school year,” Freshman CLC member Mayra Orozco said. “Admission was ten non-perishable items or five dollars for the food pantry.”

By the end of the year, CLC hopes to collect thirteen thousand items to distribute to those in need in the community.

The event was hosted by Senior CLC member Lucee Lugo and Freshman Turner Hudson. Between each act, they threw T-shirts to the crowd and did raffle giveaways. While anyone could participate, a great deal of the acts were from CLC students.

“We had some incredibly talented people come out to compete,” Rebecca Davis, CLC Graduate Assistant and the person that ran the Battle of the Talents, said “We had a wide variety in our acts; singers, pianists, an ASL interpreted song, dancers, and a slam poet.”

Three judges helped to describe each performance and select the winner. Freshman Mayra Orozco won first place and $100 for her dance to Shawn Mendes’s song “Lost in Japan.” A fan favorite award was given out as well and Jonathan Rollins won it with singing another Shawn Mendes song of “Mercy” winning a $25 gift card.

The Trojan food pantry is always accepting donations and are especially in need of Thanksgiving foods such as corn, green beans and stuffing for the holidays.
