RAHWAY — In May, the Young Women’s Leadership Council at Rahway High School held a prom dress drive. Under the direction of English teacher Annette Goodman, the YWLC is comprised of female students who meet regularly to address and express issues or concerns that girls believe are relevant to their success in school and life.
This year, one of the YWLC’s fundraising activities was to present a fashion show with a prom dress giveaway. The YWLC and Student Government Association members worked cooperatively to make this happen. Close to 200 dresses were donated, and the items that were not taken by Rahway students or community members were donated to other charitable organizations. In this way, the YWLC continued to “pay it forward.”
