The 20th Century Onyx Club Debutante Courts 
One of the highlights of the 2009 Debutante Court was being featured in documentary film called the “Girls in the White Dress”. It was exciting to have a film crew filming us, capturing the work we performed and what it takes to be a debutante.  

As a debutante a lot of doors are opened to me due to the connection I made. Our debutante court motto was “Once a debutante, always a debutante”. My overall debutante experience was fun, exciting and memorable. I made a lot of new friends and created a sisterhood with my debutante court.  

I had a wonderful time, met a lot of amazing people and was blessed in my life with the women in the Onyx Club.

My fondest memories was at coronation time I received the following honors: 1st Runner Up, Academic Scholar Award, and Miss Congeniality. 

However the greatest honor I received was to fulfil my  Aunt Victoria J. Russell's  wishes. Desiree said quote, "A wise woman once said, "Let go of your ego and let love in! When you do this, you will step into a village of welcome.
