Because of the inclement weather, things had to be done a little differently this year. Students walked in hanging up umbrellas and lining up for the Grand March inside. The line of couples was weaved around half the room, but once French teacher Matthew Lindsey, the announcer of the Grand March, got things going, it was a little more easygoing for the students.
The parents, on the other hand, were a different story. Parents were packed on the other side of the room shoving their way through everyone to get the perfect shot of their child. It was crowded enough on that side of the room that not all the parents could fit inside, and some were still waiting outside in the rain. It didn’t take long for Lindsey to handle the situation, though, and he had no problem telling parents to get out of the way and leave when their child was done. Although some of the adults may have found his actions unmannerly, they were by all means necessary.
After the hour-or-so-long Grand March was over, the dance was finally ready to begin. As parents made their way out, students made their way to the dance floor. The D.J. played everything from “Baby Got Back” to the “Electric Slide” until 10 p.m. when it was time for prom court to be announced. The winners were as follows:
The Prom Prince was Donald Bush and the Prom Princess was Cheniqua Smithers. Scotty Mayes was Prom King and Courtney Coomes was Prom Queen.
Everyone could tell from the looks on their faces that they were happy to be named to the prom court.
