Junior Cotillions appoint new director

NORMAN — The National League of Junior Cotillions has announced the appointment of Loren Kruger as the new director for the Cleveland County Chapter in Oklahoma.

The National League of Junior Cotillions program — which features character education, etiquette and social dance training for fifth-through eighth-grade students — includes six classes and one ball over an eight-month period.

The purpose of the National League of Junior Cotillions program is to give students instruction in ballroom dance and practice in the social courtesies needed for better relationships with their family and friends.

Students actively learn life skills through a creative method employing role-playing, skits and games.

Kruger is an alumnus of the University of Oklahoma and Paris Fashion Institute. She has been in the fashion industry for more than 25 years — working in Paris, Milan and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia — and is an image consultant for Julian Gold in San Antonio.

Kruger and her husband, James, have two children Phillip (Trippy), 21, and Charlotte, 12.

Kruger is a member of the National Charity League and the Women’s Skeet League and is a docent at the McNay Art Museum.

She has chaired the Blue Star Arts and Eats Gala and Art Pace Chalk it Up Festival.
