you have to be in the "IN" croud so if your not don't waste your time. I found out real quick when i was there that I couldn't be in it because I wasn't "popular"

Yeah but why were you chosen and be honest.

I am a current member of Sub Debs and was chosen based on my tryouts and recommendation from someone in the community. We do bake sales for local businesses, host a dance for the school and paint kids faces at several events. The only reason we have a bad rep is because we do "Hell Night" to initiate the girls. It's changed a lot over the years, we don't do hazing anymore. Our sponsors don't allow anything bad to happen. So don't judge us by what you've heard.

Sub debs USED to be about community service. Now it's just trouble. Sure, there are some good girls in it. But they like to party for sure. I know for a fact that at last years hell night over half the girls had been drinking. And I won't name names, but we all know one of the subdebs got so drunk at the dance they sponser that she threw up and fell in it and had to go to the hospital. I hope that subdebs can turn back into what it used to be. Communitry service and bonding between girls who want success.
Yeah right

My daughter is in sub debs and she is none of the above. The girl that was drinking at the dance and ended up in the hospital is not in sub debs.

how many of the Sub debs parents have businesses,or are wealthy? how many of the SD's are from not so wealthy family's? I'd like to see some numbers on that.Its seems to me that any girl wanting to do good and help out in the community would be welcomed to join.
Sounds like we may have a case of segregation.Maybe the school should take another look at that before there is legal action taken.
I know I would do anything so that my was made to feel she wasn't good enough.This isn't the same as not being qualified for a sports team.this has to do with a group or gang of girls saying whether or not our daughters are good enough to be part of the community.
This isnt college with adults ,this is still children that can be hurt in many ways and not a secret society where children can affect other childrens well being.God forbid a child should be driven to attempt suicide because she was told she wasn't good enough to help out in the community,which according to some posts here that is all it is and not some college carry over sorority,ousting children because of who there parents are or how much money they have.

Lol that's bc it isn't just about helping out in the community, that's just a front as not to expose what its really about. Seems like pat gray headed it back in the day. Its just a high school sorority. They only accept girls that are from wealth and affluence. There wasn't one black girl in it when I was in high school, but seems like they have had a token one since, but they have to be from an uncle Tom type black family. Can't have a typical jive talking one.
Anyway, does it surprise you that's the way its done, come on?!? Look up the definition of debutante. You couldn't have a poor ugly girl from no connections be a member. That would bring the others down. What would they gain by doing this, other than ruining their image.
So let me say they will tell you different to try and cast some kind of humble image, despite the fact that at the same time that want to exude exclusivity, and superiority. But we all know different that knows anything.
On a side note why can't people just tell the truth about how things are?

I am sorry but you are wrong. Maybe some of the girls are like that, but not my daughter this is her 2nd year in Sub Debs. We moved here when she was in the 10th grade. I was a single mom, no influence, no relation to anyone here. We did not know but maybe 3 people in the entire town. My daughter is pretty, makes straight A's and is a very bright easy going child that everyone has grown to love. Never been in any sort of trouble, don't go to partys, has been awarded the bronze award in Girl Scouts, is in Youth Leadership and works 2 jobs as of now and drives a 1996 model vehicle even now. We do not fit the mold you are describing above.

Can I say that, the previous year's student president decides who gets in. Maybe your daughter was liked by her or something.. I mean she is pretty well known among high school kids. She would definitely help keep the sub debs supposed image up.

Sub Debs isn't affiliated with the school Stand Up. And wealth has nothing to do with it. So unless you've been a member of it, don't talk about us. And so what if a girl got drunk at the dance, I'm sure you never drank before you turned 21.
