Such an inspiration! Another school this year tried to deny a teenage girl from wearing a tuxedo to her high school prom.
The incident took place at a Chicago area school when senior Belinda Sanchez was told she wouldn’t be able to wear a tux.
Her school requires all students to submit a photo of their intended prom dress before for approval. When she met with her principal last month, she stated she chose the tux because it represented her.
Unfortunately the principal stated he didn’t want a "sideshow" at what he described as "his" prom and suggested she wear something "more revealing" than a tuxedo.
Belinda states, "I was shocked. I didn't know what to say. I felt like crying out of anger. I didn't expect it from him."
So Belinda took the matter to the law and her attorneys sent a letter to the school district informing them the refusal violated her constitutional rights.
Thankfully the school changed their minds quickly and yesterday informed all of those involved that Miz Sanchez would have the opportunity to wear a tux.
Her daughter Emily is part of her school’s Key Club and the organization is helping to collect prom dress for the underprivileged.
“I seldom like to ask for donations or things like that but since this is to help Emily's Key Club help others then I shall ask.
The Miami Country Day High School Key Club (Emily is the chairperson of the club project) is requesting prom dresses or dresses that could be worn at a high school prom to be donated so they can distribute them to high school girls in underprivileged schools that do not have the money to buy their own prom dresses. Proms are usually held for 11th and 12th graders so they must be between 15 and 19 year old girls of all different sizes.
If you have a dress you can donate, please send the dresses to Estefan Enterprises, Inc. 420 Jefferson Avenue, Miami Beach, Fla. 33139 and we will send it to the school.
