Highlands seeking volunteers to help students get ready for prom
Going to the prom can cost a lot, and staff members at Highlands High School are seeking help make it more affordable for their students in need.
Volunteers are being sought to do hair, makeup and nails for girls on the day of the prom, May 10. Not to leave the guys out, barbers are also being asked to volunteer, said Kathy Black, a physical education teacher at Highlands High School.
Black said the idea got started after some teachers donated prom dresses to a community closet that helps students at the high school.
Having the donated services could save students hundreds of dollars, she said.
Several professionals, including former students, have already stepped up to volunteer, but more are still being sought, Black said.
Students go to school until 11 a.m. the day of the prom, Black said. Those volunteering their services would be needed for an hour or two between 11 a.m. or noon and 4 p.m.
Black said word will get out to students about how to avail themselves of the donated services and set appointments for that day. Those details were still being finalized.
