Eric H. Thompson: “The advantage of my daughter being in the 2012 debutante ball were many. What I found most important was the opportunity to meet new people, learn new things, and begin a journey into adulthood knowing that there is a standard she must live by. Also, it’s a celebration of her womanhood. Knowing that she’ll be used by God to impact our community”
Adrienne R. Thompson: “The advantages of my daughter being a debutante is the opportunity to be a part of a sisterhood that will last a lifetime. It will expose her to a variety of young women with the same common goal…’success.’”
John Montgomery, Jr.: “I was an escort in 1980 and 1983. Now I am presenting my sister into a tradition of excellence. Kiana Montgomery will have found a bond that will help her grow and fulfill her commitment of caring for others in Milwaukee and throughout the U.S.”
Gwendolyn Bivins: “My daughter will experience the message from the community that she is now a part of the community. She is also now responsible to improve it!”
