One of the eight contestants for the crown, Andrew Nash is portraying Luke Skywalker. His dance partner and escort is Carolyn Payne.

“I wanted to be Luke Skywalker because I like Star Wars. He is adventurous and seeks to bring goodness to the galaxy,” said Nash.

Nash is excited to compete his talent because he thinks that it will be funny and a crowd pleaser. He will be dancing with his friends, Josh Watson, Lars Eklund, PJ Hinch and Joey Hall.  

“It has been fun getting to dance with some of my best friends. I am willing to do anything to help a friend, and I hope that Andrew wins,” said Hinch.

“I decided to do Mr. Linganore because a bunch of my friends were doing it, so I thought ‘why not?’” said Nash.

Nash is a member of the Academic Team, band, National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, German Honor Society and Tri-M Honor Society.

Outside of school, Nash likes to participate in YoungLife on Wednesday nights.

After high school, Nash hopes to attend North Carolina State University to study aerospace engineering. He is completing the Project Lead the Way program this semester.

“I.think that I will win Mr. Linganore because of my superior dancing capabilities, my good looks and my ability to rock a tuxedo,” said Nash.
