Chenoa Waditaka, 18, modeled her pink, sparkly, fantasy dress on Friday. This is what she will be wearing for her graduation in the spring. Behind her is an array of the dresses on display at Wesmor Community School, all for sale for $25 each. Students from Wesmor or any other graduating program in the city and beyond may take advantage of the opportunity to buy their grad dress through Wesmor's grad dress program. The idea is to shed a portion of the monetary burden of graduation by giving students an option other than the $500 price mark that commonly comes with a graduation dress. All of the dresses are donated by individuals who no longer need them or by companies, shedding their sample gowns.
