New Day Academy Hits the Catwalk

NDA models strike a pose

New Day Academy students are proud to be participating in the 2014 Best of the Best Fashion Face-Off and Prom Expo. The annual event is a city-wide high school fashion competition with a grand prize of $1,000 awarded to the winning school. Beginning in 1997, the competition, which is open to both males and females, enables students to raise money for their prom, as well as show off their fashion style. The competition has previously brought together hundreds of students throughout the Cleveland and Akron areas.

While the final competition is not until March 2014, New Day Academy students have assembled as early as October to decide on a theme, select music, and the clothing that will be modeled. More than modeling, however, New Day students are learning the importance of teamwork, organization, and how to prepare for large scale events. Henderson Deal, the advisor for NDA’s team, had the New Day Academy models  first walk the runway at NDA’s YOU-nity Fest in June, an event that allowed the community at-large to view what NDA has to offer.

To date, NDA’s participants are Desiree Battle (11th grade), Kamille Harris (9th grade), Janasha Robinson (10th grade), Naija Roundtree (12th grade), and Brooke Sims (10th grade). Deal states that spaces for both male and female models are still available, however. Don’t forget to check the New Day Academy website at for more information on this exciting competition.
