Mountaineer Idol Gives Back Campaign

Partners with Jessi’s Pals for Oct. 19 Performance

Jessica Lynch and Nashville Recording Artist Brooks Parker will serve as Celebrity Judges


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Mountaineer Idol Gives Back Campaign announced

today its partnership with Jessi’s Pals. The project will kick off at the Oct. 19

performance when contestants present new stuffed animals to Jessica Lynch for WVU

Children’s Hospital patients.

Lynch, former POW, will serve as a guest judge for the 9:00 p.m. performance at  the Met Theater. Contestants will also be judged by Nashville Recording Artist and West

Virginia native Brooks Parker.

“Mountaineer Idol Gives Back, in conjunction with the Mountaineer Week

Challenge, is excited to present toys and donations to Jessi’s Pals during the performance.

Of course, if folks want to donate to Jessi’s Pals we can accept new stuffed animals and

or money at any Mountaineer Week event,” says Sonja Wilson, Mountaineer Week and

Mountaineer Idol Advisor.

Mountaineer Week runs from Nov. 2-11.


Brooks Parker will be returning to judge this very special Mountaineer Idol

Elimination Round. Parker is a Fairmont native and former WVU student. He studied

organ and voice at the College of Creative Arts and commercial voice at Belmont School

of Music. He is currently preparing to perform in “Christmas at Belmont”

Seven contestants will be performing their favorite Country Hits at the Met

Theater in Morgantown. Two will be eliminated at the conclusion of the show. The

winner will be selected on Nov. 11.

Mountaineer Week began at West Virginia University in 1947 as a three-day celebration of the state of West Virginia and to arouse more school spirit. Mountaineer Idol was introduced into the festivities in 2005 and offers a $1,000 prize to the winner. The Mountaineer Week Challenge was introduced last year. The challenge is a contest between student organizations and residence halls for a coveted trophy and bragging rights by participating in the most Mountaineer Week Events.


Jessi’s Pal was introduced in July 2007. She received hundreds of letters and gifts from children while she was recovering from injuries sustained as a POW in Iraq in 2003. The program started with 50 stuffed animals and a $1,000 pledge from the Jessica Lynch Foundation.
