Tye is a first-year The IIE Bachelor of Education in Intermediate Phase Teaching student, while Strauss is a first-year The IIE Bachelor of Arts student.

Varsity College Port Elizabeth’s annual Mr and Miss VC event raises awareness and funds for Varsity College’s annual chosen Corporate Social Initiative.

The 2017 initiative is The Qhubeka Education Project, which distributes bicycles to students, teachers and school volunteers to improve access to education, reduce travel time and improve educational outcomes.

The top 20 Mr and Miss VC contestants took to the runway and successfully and professionally showcased the latest fashion trends, with clothing sponsored by Heinz In Style, Elegant Ivy (Yvette Peo), Woolworths and the PE Opera House.

“We would like to thank all who came out to support our models and The Qhubeka Education Project.

“We also greatly appreciate all the sponsors for their contributions – it made this event a huge success,” said Brett Thompson, Sport and Social Coordinator.

The judges on the evening included Marco Kleu (Men’s Health Cover December 2016), Gail Brown (Sophisticate Models owner) and Nicholas Affat (Die Burger Mr PE 2016).
