Debonair Project 'perfect fit' for ASMSA students

Debonair Project 'perfect fit' for ASMSA students

HOT SPRINGS — During a Residence Life Office staff meeting at the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts last year, DeKevious Wilson listened as his fellow staff members spoke about the upcoming 2012 prom.

 

At one point, the school’s Cinderella Project was discussed. The program provides donated prom dresses for an affordable price for female ASMSA students.

 

“I sat and thought ‘O.K. I’ve heard of the Cinderella Project that they do for the females,’ and I was waiting to hear something for the males,” said Wilson, who served his first year as a residential mentor during the 2011-12 school year. “When I didn’t hear anything, it kind of struck something with me, knowing a lot of the students might not have the means to rent a tux or buy a suit.”

 

That was when the DeKevious Wilson Debonair Project was born.
