NHS members walked down the runway on Sunday, Jan. 11 modeling prom dresses and tuxedoes for the Natalie M. Fashion Show at the Overland Park Convention Center. The fashion show benefits the Natalie M. Foundation, while also donating money to schools to further education. Mill Valley had 15 NHS members that participated. Each NHS member was required to raise $100 worth of tickets. The money that Mill Valley raised went towards NHS.

Senior Maddie Butterfield participated and enjoyed the experience.

“I thought it was a really fun community service opportunity,” Butterfield said. “It’s pretty unique and I’ve never felt more glamorous.”

Senior Cody Deas was looking forward to modeling in the show.

“I was excited about it last year but unfortunately I missed the deadline for the sign up, so I really wanted to do it this year before I left high school,” Deas said.

Senior Laci Moore came to watch the show and thought it was a great event.

“It was definitely a success because of how many people there were and how many people raised money, it was great,” Moore said.

The event was sponsored by Tony Bowls who provided dresses and suits for the students. At the beginning of the show Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev, spoke about the Natalie M. Foundation.

Deas thought the show was a lot of fun and everybody enjoyed it.

“It attracted a lot of people,” Deas said. “Everybody that was modeling had a lot of fun, it was successful.”

Junior Jennifer Sims felt anxious about participating in the show.

“I was extremely nervous getting ready to go on because I have never done a nything like that,” Sims said. “I have not even walked in heels before.”

Junior Sivani Gadiraju really enjoyed modeling in the show and would want to do it next year.

“I would like to do it again,” Gadiraju said. “It was a fun experience.”
