On Eve of March Madness, These Brackets Tell Different ‘Cinderella Story’

Piping for the event's dressing rooms lies on the YWCA floor, awaiting the hands-on expertise of construction majors.

Five building construction students pulled kindness, elbow grease and a little magic from their toolboxes over the weekend, helping to set up and tear down for the Junior League of Williamsport’s “Cinderella’s Closet.” Organizers collected thousands of new and gently used prom gowns for the event, in which young women (helped by volunteer Fairy Godmothers) could find the perfect formal attire at affordable prices. Contributing time and talents to assemble/disassemble the pipe-and-drape dressing booths at the Williamsport YWCA during their waning days of Spring Break were James P. Dailey, of Williamsport; Joe J. Hetrick, of Painted Post, New York; Terrance C. Hillman, of Williamsport; Michael V. Saylor, of Gettysburg; and Dakota M. Shaffer, of Williamsport.

These students graciously volunteered their “spring break” time for this worthwhile local event! Great way to put their everyday skills to work for the good of the community.
