South Carroll students to promenade in prom fashions


April 06, 2001|By Christy Kruhm | Christy Kruhm,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE ARRIVAL OF spring often signals the beginning of prom season for many high school students.

The opportunity to preview the latest in prom fashions for men and women is the highlight of South Carroll High School's annual Spring Fashion Show. The show begins at 7 p.m. tomorrow in the school auditorium, 1300 W. Old Liberty Road, Winfield.

This is the third year the school's PTSO has sponsored this increasingly popular event. Twenty-nine student models will show prom fashions and casual wear provided by local clothing merchants.

Choreographing the show for the third year is Mia Hunter, a former South Carroll student. In addition to motivating the student models, she set the show to music and taught techniques of stage movement.

Mallory Sutphin and Sean Hopkins will be masters of ceremonies for the evening. Several student acts will be featured, including performances by South Carroll Dance Club, soloist Maria Chaconas and vocal trio Brittney Carow, Michelle Lambert and Sarah Weddle.

The proceeds will help pay for performance attire for the school chorus, and go toward the purchase of a sound system for the stadium.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Door prizes will be awarded.

Youth art month

Winfield Elementary School is full of budding young artists.

In honor of Celebrating Youth Art Month, selected pupils had artwork on display during March at Carroll Community College.

The artists are: Rachel Roemer, Davy Holden, Katie Gibson, Wesley Fry, Lauren Ehrensberger, Heather Stultz, Cheyenne Skidmore, Cody Merson, Jessica Heying and E. J. Kreinar.

Easter food for families

Through the generosity of pupils and parents of Winfield Elementary, the school's PTA will provide Easter dinner and hams to 10 families.

Danielle Fowler, chairwoman of the PTA's Neighbors in Need Committee, said it wasn't necessary to hold the school's annual Easter food drive this year. The group had more than enough money to purchase holiday food items because of cash donations made by the kindergarten and first-grade classes.

It takes a lot of pennies to add up to $250, but that's how much first-graders collected during the past several months. Kindergarten pupils collected $100 in change. All money was donated to the Neighbors in Need program.

The program provides families in the school community with holiday meals, gifts and coats.
