Tri-County Cosmetology students to volunteer at Miss Amazing Pageant
Students in the Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School Cosmetology Program will proudly volunteer for the second year in a row at the Miss Amazing Pageant to be held at Medfield High School on Saturday, February 28.
Miss Amazing Inc. is a national organization that provides opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to build self-confidence in a supportive environment. This is the second year Massachusetts has hosted a Miss Amazing Pageant under the direction of Medfield High School senior Andrea Nevins.
Tri-County Cosmetology students who volunteered at last year’s pageant were honored to be invited back for the pageant’s second year. While the event gives the students an opportunity to showcase the various hairstyling techniques they’ve learned in their vocational program, they say being able to make another person happy means so much more.
“It is such a great event for our students to volunteer their time and put their talents to good use,” said Donna Flynn, Tri-County Cosmetology instructor. “When we went last year, I don't think the students understood the impact they would make on the contestants until we got there and they saw how excited the girls were to get their hair and make-up done.”
The event will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday at Medfield High School.
The Student Council at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School is hosting a Prom Dress Exchange in hopes of making the special night affordable for all.
Junior Class President Aimee Evers said she wanted to begin the exchange after realizing the high cost of a dress can force many students to skip the annual event.
“I was thinking of how expensive it is to go to prom and how a lot of girls don't go to prom because it is so expensive to get a dress, so we're just having girls donate dresses so everybody has the opportunity to get a dress that they love,” said the Franklin teen.
Evers added that the response from her classmates has been very positive and that many students and faculty expressed an interest in donating.
Outside donations will be gratefully accepted during regular school hours. Donors can drop off their gowns at the Tri-County Guidance Office, located at 147 Pond Street in Franklin, through March 9. Accessories, such as costume jewelry and hand bags, will also be accepted.
Tri-County students planning to attend prom will have the opportunity to try on the dresses and select one they would like to wear during an event in the school cafeteria from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on March 12. Students do not have to donate a dress in order to pick one out.
The National Honor Society will be hosting its annual Speedball
Tournament for teachers and students on March 10 and 11 from 2:30 - 4.
The entry fee is $35 per 7 person team or $7 per person. Teams can
sign-up and pay the registration fee next week during
lunch. Come have fun and contribute to a good cause at the same time;
the money raised will benefit the Jimmy Fund!
