After a several year hiatus, on Sunday, Dec. 3, the announcement of Mr. and Mrs. Westlake made its return to Westlake City Hall. Mayor Dennis Clough announced the 2018 Mr. and Mrs. Westlake as the rotunda’s holiday lights were fired up up for the first time this season. 

This year’s winners are Cristina and Tery Kennedy.

The Kennedys are active members of the community with heavy involvement in the Westlake City Schools. They are members of various Westlake P.T.A. organizations, Citizens for Westlake Schools, and the Westlake City Schools Strategic Planning Committee.

They also have dedicated time to the Westlake Soccer Association, local Cub Scout Pack 77, and St. Ladislas Church.

For over 35 years the Westlake Town Criers have selected a Mr. and Mrs. Westlake based on nominations from the community. Winners are then chosen based on their dedication to service of the Westlake community. 

As Mr. and Mrs. Westlake, the Kennedys will be guests of honor during Westlake's Fourth of July and Memorial Day parades. The Town Criers will also host a dinner in their honor in the fall of 2018. 

The Westlake Town Criers is a non-profit organization of men who are members of civic and business professions within Westlake and neighboring communities. The Criers are dedicated to aid and assist worthy causes in Westlake, providing benefits to citizens, schools, civic and community organizations.
