Taylor High School Marketing/DECA students held its annual prom fashion show on February 22. The marketing students worked hard all month to plan, organize, market, promote, sell and decorate for the show.
They worked in the community with local businesses Men’s Wearhouse and David’s Bridal as vendors for the show.
The show was a huge success. State DECA Executive Board President campaign candidate Nate Jacobs, from Lincoln Park, attended and helped open the show with Mrs. Lundgren. The show had 20 male and 20 female models wearing the latest fashions for prom season.
Vheena Villareal opened the show singing the National Anthem beautifully. Seniors Karizma Melendez and Evan Waller were MCs for the show and performed wonderfully.
Taylor alumni and former DECA King Austin Gignac came back to crown our 2019 king and queen, Karizma Melendez and Mohammad Monet. Other court members were Marissa Ogea, Sana Abedi, Vhenna Villareal, Evan Waller, Anthony Mohlman, and Sylvester Grant.
Xavier Bailey was voted best dressed. Big shout out to Chris Sherry who helped with music and choreography.
The show also featured a surprise “prom-posal” and a glorious finale. Students in attendance received $50 off coupons from David’s Bridal and $40 off coupons from Men’s Wearhouse.
The theme for the show and this year’s prom is Gods and Goddesses. Prom will be May 9 at Crystal Gardens. Everyone looks forward to an amazing “senior” season coming up!
Thanks to administration and staff for allowing the marketing students to use the skills and curriculum they learned in class and put towards real life experience. They learned a great deal and are very thankful. The money made at the show will go toward taking the kids who qualified for International Career Development Conference to Orlando, Florida.
