Prom 2K16 By: Emilee Sweley A Night on the Nile was the theme of prom 2016. This year things were switched up by having the dinner in the old gym, followed by the parade of formals, the coronation, and then the dance. Additionally, the Junior class voted to invite school faculty to join them at the dinner. The meal consisted of bacon-wrapped pork medallions, cheesy potatoes, creamed corn, and for dessert: a cheesecake bar where you could pick your own toppings! Prom royalty was awarded to Angel Halouska and Marshall Kohls. Prom was a blast filled with lots of dancing, slushies, and even a photo booth! A huge and well-deserved thanks goes out to the Juniors and Mrs. Varah for making prom 2k16 a great one! Also thanks to Teresa Pickar and the Booster Club for another great post prom at the Big Apple.
