Eastview High School graduate Dustin Hatzenbuhler appeared in front of the celebrity judges on NBC's "The Voice" in an episode aired last week.
The call–from a strange California number—came in while Dustin Hatzenbuhler was mowing the grass. So Hatzenbuhler did what many do; he screened the caller. It wasn't until he checked the message moments later that the Apple Valley resident realized he'd just missed an out-of-the-blue call from a producer on NBC's "The Voice". The producer, Hatzenbuhler said, wanted him to audition for the show. "Nobody was around, and nobody was in my house, and I was just like 'I can't tell anybody about this right now, I was just too full of excitement," Hatzenbuhler said. Hatzenbuhler, who made it to the nationally televised blind auditions, performed Michael Bublés' "Haven’t Met You Yet" in an episode aired last week. Click here to check out Dustin …

Eagan resident and Eastview High School grad Dare Van Waes was named Miss Teen Minnesota at the statewide Miss Coed Minnesota Pageant on March 23-24 in Minneapolis.
Dare Van Waes isn't your stereotypical pageant girl. A full-time student at Inver Hills Community College, Van Waes holds down five jobs as a waitress, theater intern, a UPS employee and as a staffer at two separate modeling agencies. The Eastview High School graduate also lives on her own—no small achievement for an 18-year-old. In between it all, Van Waes still finds time to pursue her passion for pageantry. Late last month, she was named Miss Teen Minnesota in the Miss Coed Minnesota Pageant—a historic 'first' for Van Waes. This November, she'll compete at the National Miss American Coed Pageant in Florida. It's not surprising, given her own resume, that Van Waes is quick to correct any misperceptions about the Miss Coed Minnesota …
