Twenty-nine young women were introduced to the community recently at the Señorita Ball of the Music Guild of New Mexico.
The ball, a 62-year tradition in Albuquerque, was held Saturday, April 13, at Hotel Albuquerque.
The Señorita Program is an educational, civic and social enrichment program for high school seniors. The program culminates with the Señorita Ball. Proceeds of the program benefit local music programs and education.
Young women who will be high school seniors can be recommended for the program by a Music Guild member during their junior year of high school or earlier. Go to musicguildofnewmexico.org for details.
