Prom was hosted by the junior class and the sponsors were Jane Melroy and Summer Younie. The event took place on Saturday and the theme was Mardi Gras.
The junior class had Friday to decorate for Prom.
The Promenade started at 6 p.m. at the Elks. When people first walked in to the Elks they had to vote for Prom king and queen. The dinner followed. Chicken Alfredo, green beans, shrimp, and cornbread muffin with honey butter were for supper and chocolate mousse pudding was for dessert.
When they finished eating junior class president Betsy Giles announced the Prom king and queen. Seniors Dustin Weber and Madison Golden were the winners. Principal Herb McPherson gave out the senior prophecies, and senior Katherine Ghumm read the junior wills. After that was done, juniors and seniors took class pictures and then the dance started.
“I enjoyed Prom because I was able to hang out and see everyone,” sophomore server Matthew Giles said.
At 11 p.m. Prom was over and it was time for After Prom. Everyone was able to go somewhere to change cloths while the juniors and sponsors cleaned up before going out to Skyline.
There were inflatables, name that tune, Hungry Hungry Hippos and Minute to Win It. There were four colors of bracelets the guests were able to wear. Each color put a person in a group and they were assigned a specific station for 25 minutes. Then the group got to play carnival games and tried to win tokens that could be exchanged for prizes. There were three levels of prizes.
“I liked being able to do the inflatables,” junior Alex Lutz said. “Jousting Hallee and running the inflatable obstacle course were my favorite things to do.”
At the end of After Prom people were able to get big prizes like a laptop, Keurig, televisions, headphones, iHome devices and luggage.
“I was hoping to either get the Xbox One or a laptop,” senior Levi Johnston said. “Instead I got some nice red luggage that will come in handy in the future.”
