"NLJC Cotillion program DIRECTOR’S PHILOSOPHY: As an experienced mother, I know that our children must know not only which fork to use at a fancy dinner, but also must know how to conduct themselves in a wide variety of social settings. I encourage you to join us as we teach etiquette, “tricks of the trade,” and tips for success at school, work, parties, teams, and anywhere your child goes in life.
Being a mother has taught me much about the absolute need for manners, grace and integrity. I know that our children must know not only basic table manners, but also they need to practice honor and respect in order to succeed in life. Knowledge and practice are the keys. Cotillion provides a safe and fun place where some real tools for life can be learned and practiced."
