March 28, 2017

Primp from Prom 2017 The annual “Primp for Prom” event was held recently at the Woodward High School Practice Gym and involved approximately 250 donated dresses and more than 50 pairs of shoes.

Each year Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Department of Social Work and Woodward High School Key Club co-sponsor the event and gather dress and shoe donations providing them to high school students at no charge. This year more than 10 schools and two states participated in the event.

Members in the Department of Social Work would like to express appreciation to the following, who contributed to the success of Primp for Prom: Woodward High School Key Club members; Anjanette Laverty, Woodward High School counselor; Northwestern student volunteers; Woodward and Shattuck community members; Woodward High School employee volunteers; and all the generous dress and shoe donors from across northwest Oklahoma.

“The Department of Social Work is always honored to sponsor this event for young women in the northwest region because it embodies our university and departmental mission to build a sense of community and provide service to others,” Dr. Kylene Rehder, Department of Social Work chair, said.
