New members to the Cotillion Club are selected their junior year in high school by an advisory board that considers leadership, community activities, college intentions, and suggestions by their senior advisory members. Club members represent the cities of Harlingen, Port Isabel, San Benito, Rio Hondo, La Feria, Santa Rosa and Willacy County. During their senior year, Cotillion members return to renew acquaintances at the Fall Luncheon and formal Presentation Ball; and at the Spring Luncheon, they are familiarized with college requirements and activities.
