Scottsdale Honors Cotillion is in full swing again this year, readying young ladies for college, for a career and beyond.

Cotillion today is a lot more than learning manners and learning how to host a dinner party, although those things still play an important role. Senior girls from all five Scottsdale public high schools and Cactus Shadows High School learn not only correct behavior but also how to apply to college, personal safety, nutrition, volunteer and make a difference in their communities, and more.
