Why a Debutante Ball? First, a Debutante is a young lady who has achieved mastery in the 4 goal areas set forth at the beginning of the F.L.Y. program. The Ball will not only be used to introduce deserving and outstanding young ladies as Debutantes to Durham society in a formal setting but it will also serve as a culmination of achievement for the young ladies of F.L.Y.. The F. L. Y. Annual Debutante Ball, at the conclusion of the 4th program year; will recognize the accomplishments of these young ladies in the Durham Area who have demonstrated superior academic excellence, exemplary moral standards and are actively engaged in their local communities.
Being a participant in a Debutante Program is a great honor and those who make the 4 year commitment will set the stage for them to be successful in their endeavors, serve as role models to their peers and become future leaders in their communities.
