The Miss Cavalier Fashion Show, an annual tradition at Kennedy High School that ended three years ago, was brought back by a group of Leadership Training Institute students. The show was held in the John F. Kennedy auditorium on Thursday, Dec. 10.  Kennedy students walked down the stage in outfits which fit into one of three categories: business casual, international, and outfit of choice. After the show three judges, Ms. Burgos, Ms. Lyons, and Ms. Rocha, tallied up the scores for each girl and decided on a winner for each category.

Mr. Frempong the LTI coordinator created a project in which students had to organize an event to benefit the community. LTI students Ahone Koge, Faith Wade, Dalal Tambal, Jennifer Bryant, and Shantavia Craig decided to organize the fashion show in order to raise money. Tickets were $3 each and the group raised around $160.

Ahone Koge, one of the Leadership Training Institute students who helped organized the event, said “The girls were fun to work with and gave it their all as they strutted down the runway. The audience was very supportive of each girl and the event was a success. It was delightful to be able to hold this event and raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.”

The LTI group also wanted to reach out to Kennedy’s more immediate community which is what compelled them to give money to the mother of a student at JFK who has breast cancer. They donated $500, which had been raised separately, and in a heartwarming moment the student’s mother cried with joy.

Around 30 people attended the fashion show. The low turnout disappointed the LTI students, but as Dalal Tambal, one of the organizers said, “although the turnout wasn’t as great as I wanted it to be the show was amazing and the ladies looked beautiful.”

She was especially happy to be able to carry on the Miss Cavalier tradition.
