This year, New Haven High School’s prom will be held in the high school gym from 7 P.M. to midnight.
Patricia Weatherly stated, “I kind of have mixed feelings about prom. I'm not a fan of formal social events but this is one of the last events of my senior year. I'm not doing anything special to prepare, just the usual nice clothes and stuff.”
Celesse Smedley stated, “I am excited for prom. I can't wait to go. I think I'm a bit nervous since it's the week after senior trip and I feel like I might be exhausted. On Friday, I am getting my nails done in Washington, on Saturday, I am getting my hair done in Hermann, and then I will do my own makeup.”
Rachel Connell then commented, “I'm feeling pretty excited about prom this year, especially because this is my first year I get to bring a boyfriend. I'm going to be with a group of friends, but I'm going to do my hair and makeup by myself. I'm going to meet up with friends beforehand... I'm pretty excited and anxious because this is my last prom I will have, since I'm a senior.”
Lucy Roth replied by saying, “I just bought my dress last weekend and I'm scouring the closets of my extended family for heels. I'm scheduling appointments, ordering corsages and boutonnieres, and figuring out my plans. I'm so excited for prom! Finding the perfect dress, getting your hair and nails done, and taking hundreds of pictures.”
She concluded with, “You get to get glamorous for a day, and no matter what anyone says, everybody loves it. It has really snuck up on me this year and I am feeling kind of anxious about getting everything done in time!”
Good luck, everyone!
