Dallin Saunders: Mr. Fremont 2015

Dallin Saunders: Mr. Fremont 2015

Through the lunch activities, early breakfast, assembly, and all the smiles in between, it might be surprising to some that planning and participating in Mr. Fremont Week can also be stressful. Many don’t know the work the National Honor Society officers and the boys put into the week making sure it’s fun for everyone.

“The hardest part to coordinate were the materials each boy needed,” said Augie Witkowski, President of National Honor Society.

For several years, Mr. Fremont has been put together by the NHS club. What made it even more stressful this year is that NHS had all new advisors and officers with no experience planning anything this big.

“The assembly was definitely hard,” said Witkowski. “I had no previous experience with assemblies and what the stage crew needs.”

While the assembly did receive great feedback and people seemed to enjoy themselves, everyone did notice a new method: voting. In the past, judges would score each boy depending on their performances and whoever had the highest score would win. This year, it was up to the student body to decide. Students could text in their votes as many times as they wanted to crown the winner.

“Since the competition is labeled “Mr. Fremont,” it only makes sense that the students got to choose the winner,” said Witkowski.

While everyone was calmly voting, backstage was a little chaotic. Nobody knew if the system could handle all the votes coming in at one time. Once they were in however, Dallin Saunders was crowned Mr. Fremont. 2nd Runner Up was Taylor Kirby, 1st Runner Up was Pake Hadley, and Paxton Merrill was Mr. Congeniality.

“I think the students got it right,” said Pake Hadley. “I’m glad Dallin won. He deserved it.”

Despite all the fun, Hadley agreed that there were stressful times during the whole week.

“I didn’t like being woken up so early for breakfast on Tuesday,” said Hadley, smiling. “But the worst part had to be all the screaming fans.”

Despite all the stress, the officers and guys pulled off a great time for everyone.

About the Author

Spikey red hair, heels a mile high, and fierce leather pants. Yep, that’s me, Acee Hepner but most people call me Ace. I wasn’t always as cool as I am now but thankfully that all changed. Four words that describe me as I am today are sarcastic, confident, fashionable, and smart. On top of all that I’m also a pretty good writer. When I’m not busy with school work and getting a perfect 4.0 GPA, I love to do anything with art - drawing, painting, and of course writing. I also love traveling, watching movies, eating good food, and fashion. One of my favorite types of writing is reviews because it gives me a chance to go try new things and spread the word about the fun (or misery) I experienced. If you can’t tell already I’m pretty different and I like to stand out. So I also like writing about different things that normally don’t get a lot of attention. I like to think of myself as the voice of the people that aren’t normally heard. So if you ever want to talk...let me know! Journalism has given me a great opportunity to get my own voice out there and a way to express myself. I have a whole new family on the Paw Print staff! I love this so much that I’m hoping to study journalism in college and land a job for a fashion magazine. But you never really know what will happen. I change my mind as often as I changed my hair color (3 times just this year to give you an idea)!
