The Montwood High School student council group will host Operation Prom, an annual event that benefits students in need of a formal dress or gown for prom.
This is the third year the campus transforms its school cafeteria into a dress shop where any teen girl has the opportunity to receive a free prom dress and accessories. Last year, more than 100 dresses were distributed to teen girls in the El Paso area.
“We want to continue the tradition,” said Jazmine Cuevas, student council member and shopcoordinator.
“Any girl can come get a dress. The important thing is to help those girls who need it.”
The Rams student council, 50 members strong, collects gently used dresses throughout the year from students and members of the community. Since its inception, Operation Prom also has received hundreds of donations and help from various stores and churches. Other El Paso area high schools, including Chapin, Irvin, Riverside, Del Valle, Burges, El Paso, Socorro, Eastwood and Mountain View, also partnered with the Rams.
