After seven weeks of competition on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, Monica Aldama has come back from Los Angeles to her Navarro College family.
Aldama spent the fall season on the popular show with her dancing partner Valentin “Val” Chmerkovskiy as part of #TeamValdama, highlighting a variety of musical genres and themes ranging from Disney princesses to movie villains.
Friends, college staff and the NC Cheer team held a surprise “Welcome Home” event for Aldama, sporting “Monica” masks, and Dr. Kevin Fegan, District President of Navarro College, presenting her with a pair of red boots.
Aldama has remained a positive and uplifting figure for Corsicana locals, having starred in two television shows this year in addition to her community and school support.
