The Morning News—Melanie Moore
Last year's Distinguished Dude Beau Hoskins, center, is surrounded by candidates vying for this year's title. Seventeen juniors showcased their fitness, talent and self expression in search of being named Distinguished Dude. The event is a fundraiser for Blackfoot's Distinguished Young Women program, which will be March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center.
"I sincerely apologize to anyone who may have been offended in tonight's program by the questionable actions of some of our Dudes," said DYW chairman Rachel Hanson. "I sincerely thank all those honest Distinguished Dudes who were very appropriate and a joy to watch. You did a fantastic job tonight! I thank the community for your support and will be more attentive to what happens on stage in the Distinguished Dude competition so as not to have to apologize for offending anyone. Thank you again for your support."

The Program last night I thought went great. My hats off to Hannah Miller for doing such a great job. That is not an easy task to take on, and then to have that many boys to keep track of as a High School student. I could not have done better as an adult.
Blackfoot has had its share of bad press. Why make this such a big headline and put us back in the public eye? The comment one of the boys made only made the audience laugh because we all would wish to be that quick whitted. We would all love our boys to be perfect,but they are asked crazy questions and it was not the ideal answer, so what! I would be more ashamed by the way Rachel Hanson handled herself by stomping up to the microphone and scolding the boys so harshly. A simple " hey guys please keep the comments a little cleaner "would have done the job. Instead to threaten them with shutting the program down right now!!! Please and Thank you goes a long way in raising our young children.
