Dress donation

Cocopah Tribal member Zoe Dugan (center) donated her traditional dress to her alma mater Somerton Middle School. Dugan, who began her junior year of high school, wore the dress during her eighth-grade promotion ceremony. The dress was made by hand and features the school’s colors and mascot. Her donation is the first of its kind for Somerton Middle School. School officials plan to put her dress on display soon. Accepting the dress are Assistant Principal Tiffany Middleton (far left) and Principal Jose Moreno.
