Deserving M-DCPS Seniors Get the Prom Experience of Their Dreams

“Say Yes to the Prom” arrived in Miami for the third year in a row to provide prom dresses, shoes and accessories for nearly 200 underserved and academically high-achieving young women, and for the first time ever - young men. Students from Booker T. Washington Senior High, Homestead Senior High and Hialeah Senior High were treated to a day of prom dresses, tuxedos, accessory “shopping” and glam sessions alongside TLC’s fashion director Monte Durham. 

Superintendent Carvalho spent the morning speaking to students about the importance of celebrating prom and graduation, but also focusing on future success. He also had the chance to help students select prom outfits and get fitted for tuxedos.
