Parma said, “I feel the prom dress code is very respectful. Strict enough to keep all that attend prom in good taste and yet, flexible enough to let all express their independence and personality.” Newhart agreed. “I feel the dress code for prom was appropriate. Some dresses are made to be way too revealing and I don’t feel that is necessary at a school sponsored function,” she said.
Upon entering the dance, students voted for Prom Queen and King, chose their seats at round tables with some of their closest friends, and enjoyed the hors d’oeurves. They took pictures in the photo booth and waited for dinner to be served.
After dinner, the prom court was announced and the King and Queen were crowned. The court consisted of 12 girls and 11 boys: Hanna Punkar, Sarah Busch, Sarah Jeppesen, Callie Fuentes, Amanda Krause, LeeAnn Farr, Giulia Giancola, Ashton Allen, Autumn Hayes, Sami Mutschler, Caitlin Sukalac, Melanie March, Kevin Orvos, Anthony Chiacchiero, Nicholas Tripodi, Blake Perry, Troy Stitt, Troy Bloom, Tyler Gancos, Robbie Wynn, Caleb Harris, Jacob Hamilton and Brett Powers. Next the junior class officers presented the Prom King, Jacob Hamilton, and the Prom Queen, LeeAnn Farr, with their crowns. DeVivo said that her favorite memory from prom was crowning her best friend Jacob Hamilton as king.
Once the traditions of prom had been carried out the students stormed the dance floor and danced the night away with their dates and classmates. Each student will be able to cherish his or her prom memories for years to come. Allen’s favorite memory from prom was the Hummer limo in which she and her friends rode to prom.
Krause said her favorite memory from prom was being with friends and taking a lot of pictures as a group. Junior Sarah Brooke said her favorite memory from prom also was taking pictures in the photo booth with friends and using all of the props that they had.
