EDISON — Students at Mother Seton Regional High School in Clark have established a Chapter of GlamourGals Foundation. GlamourGals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has inspired and organized teens to provide companionship and complimentary beauty makeovers to women living in senior homes since 2000.

Mother Seton’s own “Glamour Gals” have partnered with Brighton Gardens in Edison Township. Approximately 70 students have volunteered for this community service event. The first makeover for Mother Seton students and the first makeover in Middlesex County were held at Sunrise Senior Living of Brighton Gardens, Edison Township.

Kavita Mehra, NYC Metro Area Program Director of GlamourGals and a 2000 graduate of Mother Seton Regional High School was instrumental in spearheading the launch of the first makeover session for her alma mater.

“It is delightful to see Kavita working in this executive capacity. We are proud of her and of her accomplishments. She is truly living the mission of Mother Seton Regional High School,” said Sister Regina Martin, principal at Mother Seton Regional High School.

Mayor Antonia Ricigliano of Edison joined Mother Seton’s volunteers along with GlamourGals Executive Board Member, Louis Valerio and staff to launch this event. The first makeover session included 15 students and several residents of Brighton Gardens.

“Aside from the makeovers and manicures, the engaging conversations among the Mother Seton students and the residents were truly heartwarming” commented Joan Barron, assistant principal at Mother Seton Regional High School, Clark.

Senior Emily Lubas of Linden is president of Mother Seton’s chapter of GlamourGals, junior Zina Sockwell of Newark is the vice-president and sophomore Marialaina Nissenbaum of Fords is the Rally Girl.

“Our GlamourGals makeover not only fulfilled my expectations but also surpassed them. Seeing the smiles on the faces of the residents after the makeover is a feeling I will cherish always. It was a privilege to be able to serve the residents of Brighton Gardens by sharing in their companionship” said Lubas.
