Why did you choose to apply to this prestigious award, the Carrol Fellows Initiative? What would it mean to you in terms of your future career and personal development?

As the end of the school year approaches, Loomis seniors prepare for a variety of exciting events— graduation, class night, and, of course, prom.  To some, prom may seem like just another dance, but deep down we all know it’s really not just any other dance. It’s magnified, glorified and expensive!  So, obviously, girls are beginning to spend hundreds of dollars on dresses that they will probably only wear once.  Why any girl would want to dish out that much dough for one night is unfathomable.  But we do, and in the end, it’s probably going to be worth it.
