The 36th annual Debutante Cotillion and Scholarship Ball hosted by Ivy Endowment Inc., in partnership with Alpha Mu Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., will be Nov. 14.
This year, 20 seniors from local high schools will be presented to society during a virtual program. Debutantes will receive a scholarship for academic achievement, fundraising and overall success in the Debutante Cotillion and Scholarship program. The father-daughter dance, a hallmark event of the program, will remain, and a debutante queen will be crowned.
The annual ball is the culminating celebration of the Debutante Cotillion and Scholarship program, which fosters academic excellence and civic leadership in college-bound high school juniors and seniors. Debutantes participate in workshops that promote high ethical standards, character development, good citizenship and social graces. All workshops were held virtually this year.
Co-chairs for the program are Niah Fulford, Jessica Parks and Rhonda Williams.
