30 Sub Debs will participate in Saturday event at The Bluff

Published 8:02 pm Saturday, January 21, 2017

The Vicksburg Sub Debs will hold their annual ball Saturday night at The Bluff of Vicksburg. The organization, which is an extracurricular club geared toward educating high school young ladies in etiquette and social refinement as well as community involvement, has 30 members.
“Members are selected by their peers during their junior year of high school,” club sponsor Bonnie Henry said.
Each year, the Sub Deb Club hosts two main events, a progressive dinner and the Sub Deb ball, Henry said, and prior to each event, the girls receive a formal etiquette and ballroom dancing lesson with their dates.
“Carole Campbell and Bridgett Hunt of RiverPointe Dance Academy have been the etiquette speaker and dance instructors, respectively, for the last three years,” Henry said, and added that in addition to these cultural aspects of the club, “Most importantly the club’s sponsors want the girls to gain insight from the club into what makes someone a true lady, the ability to treat others with respect and to put others’ needs above their own.”
And for the last four years, Henry said the members have adopted Operation Christmas Child as their philanthropy.
“This year the girls were excited to have the opportunity to fill over 60 shoe boxes with toys and daily necessities for children in need around the world,” she said.
Also serving as sponsors for the Sub Deb Club are Amy Campbell, Debbie Freeman and Lana Claire Morgan.

“From staying informed with local governmental issues to hearing the stories of its people, a hometown newspaper is vital to a community. I have felt privileged to be part of a dedicated team at The Post throughout my tenure and hope that with theirs and with local support, I will be able to continue to grow and hone in on my skills as I help share the stories in Vicksburg. When asked what I like most about my job, my answer is always ‘the people.’
