Last Saturday was prom, a highly anticipated event at any high school across the country. This year’s High School prom was held at Evelyn’s Park, and the theme was “A Night in Hollywood.” The venue was set up phenomenally, split between an outdoor space with tables where students could chat with friends over delicious quesadillas and an indoor space featuring a dance floor where students could let loose. To honor the theme, a red carpet was set up at the entrance and Ms. [Kim] Harrison, High School teacher for English Language Arts and Film, was the paparazzi photographer for the night, allowing each student to experience their own red carpet moment.
To pay tribute to the graduating senior class, an awards ceremony was held and each senior was presented with their own mini Oscars trophy. The ceremony was lighthearted but touching, and I’d say the Post Oak version of the Oscars went far more smoothly than the actual Oscars this year.
For four hours, students danced the night away, jumping and singing along to hits such as “Sicko Mode” and “Sweet Caroline.” Although most schools limit prom to only juniors and seniors, High School students of all four grades are invited to Post Oak’s prom. In addition, students were allowed to invite outside guests for the first time in three years, which made this year’s prom all the more memorable. Given that nearly every High School student attended Prom this year and many outside guests were present, it’s safe to say that it was a record-breaking prom attendance-wise, and it was very possibly the biggest party in Post Oak’s history.
This year’s prom was a resounding success, and there are many people who made it all possible. Some of the people who deserve to be thanked include all the members of the Prom Committee, who worked tirelessly for months to plan every single aspect of the event, the school administration (especially Ms. [Debbie] Henderson, MDC administrator,) since they assisted the Prom Committee and made sure everything was in order, and, of course, every student who brought their best outfits and dance moves.
