Prom 2014

Seniors from the Waco campus and Boys Ranch attended their prom on Saturday, April 5.  The theme this year was “Black Tie Affair.”  The day began early for 26 young ladies who had their make-up done by volunteers.

“Spending time with these precious girls and helping them get ready for prom filled my heart with joy,” shared Karrie Smith, Mary Kay consultant.  “My favorite moment was when one of the girls looked in the mirror after we finished and said, ‘Is that really me?’  I would love to spend more time volunteering at Methodist Children’s Home.”

Michelle Roy, Mary Kay consultant said, “The opportunity to touch these girls’ lives blessed and touched my heart more than I could have ever imagined!”

 As seniors arrived that evening they had their pictures taken.  They enjoyed pizza, hot wings, red velvet cupcakes and a candy bar along with great music and dancing.  New this year was a photo booth where they could use props and take pictures with their friends. 

 “It is an amazing experience to see our seniors absolutely beautiful and handsome for the evening,” commented Denise Ondrey, student events coordinator. “Not only does it seem to transform their appearances, but also seems to transform their self confidence and how they present themselves for the evening.”
