The evening began with Patroness Michelle Alexander presenting the senior girls, called Ticktockers, and recognizing the successful completion of their six-year NCL program of philanthropic, cultural, and leadership activities. The seniors, escorted by their fathers, wore white dresses as a symbol of new beginnings and fresh opportunities. NCL, Inc.
