I want to say thanks to Faith and Ashley for stopping by this morning as the newly crowned Miss Hermantown and Ambassador. Thanks to Rhonda for inviting me, I met with past Miss Hermantowns and the Ambassadors too. I didn't realize how tough it is to be a judge in something like that.  One thing I have to say is that when you are judge you aren't judging the negative aspects of these young women, you are judging the positive.

One thing the parents and ladies that were in the competition last Friday, is not that you don't have it, it's that we found more aspects of what we thought would make a good Miss Hermantown.  The ladies that didn't make it to the winning circle, you are wonderful young women and should try again. If you don't ever try again, you will be great people in society.

I would encourage more young ladies in Hermantown to be a part of this next year, just for the learning experience of it.
