Ms Talbot said the debutantes would be presented to Horsham Rural City Council mayor Pam Clarke and Federation University Associate Professor Geoff Lord.

“There was a lot of interest from the students about what a debutante ball involves and they are really excited for the big night,” she said. 

The formal presentation will occur in the main theatre of the Horsham Town Hall followed by a supper and disco.

“We would like to extend an open invitation to all Wimmera residents to this special event,” she said. 

Ms Talbot said tickets can be purchased at www.horshamtownhall.com.au for $20 per person.
