KINGSVILLE (March 4, 2011) — Several individuals and groups at Texas A&M University-Kingsville recently got together to help girls from South Texas who would otherwise not be able to afford to go to their high school prom. With prom right around the corner, Gumby’s Closet gave an opportunity for the girls to pick from a wide variety of donated dresses. The event was organized by John Salinas, senior academic advisor in University College and Diana Lozano, assistant director of international admissions. It was named for Diana’s daughter Melissa Flores, who was called Gumby by her friends. Melissa was killed in an automobile accident during her senior year at H.M. King High School. Student groups who assisted included the Fashion Interiors Merchandising group and Alpha Sigma Alpha. Shown modeling some of the dresses are A&M-Kingsville students Karla Salinas, an animal science major from Mexico; Priscilla Casias, an interdisciplinary studies major from Lytle; Nadia Montalvo, an agribusiness major from Weslaco; and Monica Pulido, a biomedical science major from Los Fresnos.  -TAMUK Photo
