On March 30, 2017, Westhill seniors strutted down the runway for the annual prom fashion show. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) has run the Westhill Fashion Show for the past several years to raise money for the senior after prom event. This year, however, the PTO decided to discontinue the event.
Students Rachel Fein (’17) and Nova Nahiyan (’17) were upset with this decision. Fein and Nahiyan decided to manage and organize the show along with the help of the Senior Student Council. Fein and Nahiyan managed to get Zemo Men’s Store, Lord & Taylor, and A Step Ahead to provide clothing for the fashion show on short notice. “These stores are generously providing us with formal wear to be modeled by our seniors,” says Fein. This gives seniors an opportunity to participate in this event for the last time. Over $1,000 was raised which will be used to lower the cost of senior prom tickets.
