LIMA — The annual Debs and Gents for Christ Cotillion will be held Saturday at Veterans Memorial Civic Center.

This marks the 31st anniversary of the program by Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, said Ann Wilson, co-chairwoman of the charm and etiquette committee.

“Our program is designed to introduce graduating seniors into society with a spiritual foundation to withstand the challenges of the world,” Wilson said. “When life throws you a curve of disappointment, frustration and uncertainties, don’t hold onto it but put your trust in God who has already overcome the world.”

This year’s event features 12 students: Destiny Allen, Nikiyja Carter, De Angelo Garner, De’Montre Garner, Jaylon Harris, Malik Hobson, Zerlina Keys, Danielle Lowe Jr., Ryan Moore, Nakiya Petty, Sylvia Upthegrove and Mina Wallace.

Association with Shiloh is not a requirement — in fact, none of the youth involved this year attend there, Wilson said.

The participants meet from November to March. The programs at the weekly meetings are varied, from listening to guest speakers on topics like financial management and scholarships, to doing community service. Participants worked at the soup kitchen at New Life International this year in addition to assembling baskets for two families at Thanksgiving and giving goods to Samaritan House at Christmas.

“I feel that this is an experience for the young people that they can look back on and hopefully find it very rewarding,” Wilson said.

The program Saturday will feature guest speaker Dr. Tyffani Monford Dent. The Lima native is a psychologist who works in child welfare and the court system. Her practice provides family counseling as well as sex abuse survivor help with an emphasis on diversity/inclusion.
