Virginia College cosmetology students help prep teens for prom

May 10, 2011

A homegrown "operation" grew into an entire day of pampering to help make a memorable prom for Birmingham teenagers.

An effort called Operation Prom Dress, started by individuals in nearby Shelby County Schools, helped collect prom dresses for Jackson Olin High School students who were recently affected by the tornados.

Cosmetology students at Birmingham's Virginia College did their part by providing no-charge manicures, pedicures and hair styles for the girls and haircuts for the boys.
