Kathy Jasper took her date to her grandmother’s house to snap some pictures in front of a big tree. When asked if she was excited for prom, Kathy responded, “I am very excited for prom. Last year was fun, and I’m expecting this year to be just as great.” Kathy had her aunt paint her nails the Thursday before prom and had her hair appointment at 8. She also did her own makeup before dinner, which was at Olive Garden.
Molly Munsinger had a hair appointment at 9 in the morning with Jill Kotthoff at Hair. After that, she went home to prepare herself for dinner and prom. Mackenzie Bauer got her sister, who is going to school for cosmetology, to do her hair and makeup. Drew Armfield invited a group to his farm, where they took pictures and ate before prom.
Jennifer Alvarez got her nails done two days before prom and had a hair appointment set up at 10 a.m. Saturday morning. For pictures, she took her friends and boyfriend to the river. After pictures, Jenny invited her friends to her house for a potluck, thinking it would be cheaper than going out to eat. When asked if she was excited for prom, she responded,” I am ready to have a good time with friends.”
Many students also took a lot of time to get ready for prom. Most girls responded with the classic, “Got my hair and nails done,” while most guys said, “Nothing.” Keven McDowell responded with an original answer, saying, “I took a shower and put on some sick threads.”
Tim Pruessner took pictures at the river with a group of juniors because he “had no date.” Tim also took a party bus with a group of friends to the Olive Garden in Chesterfield. “Prom was pretty cool; the decorations were super unique.”
Courtney Yowell said, “I got my nails done the day before prom and then got my hair and makeup done the day of prom.”
The theme of prom was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. During coronation, seniors walked down the court or did their own little dance. After all seniors were announced, Willy Schejbal was announced prom king, and Beth Schenck was crowned prom queen.
Overall, Students enjoyed prom, and the sophomores becoming juniors next year are looking forward to designing prom for the upcoming seniors.
