As spring term at community school begins to come to a close, the student body celebrated its annual Prom last weekend. A fun and exciting piece leading up to the weekend of prom is promposals. Student senate had the idea of hosting a competition for the best promposal. Whoever the student senate deemed to have the best promposal, would award 2 free prom tickets to the winner of the competition.There were a few creative promposals submitted to the competition this year: everything from giant banners to a video from a celebrity.
Our first submission was from Wilson Baker. Wilson asked Ava Verhaeghe with a banner that said, “would you be UP for prom with me, “ with the theme of the banner being disney’s Up. He asked her at the top level of the pavillion and was holding the a bunch of balloons while a couple of his friends held up the banner.
Our second submission was from Cash Dart. Cash asked Ella Wolter with a video he played assembly. The video was comprised of a bunch of reasons why Ella should go to prom with Cash. His proposal was met with laughter from the student body, and a yes from Ella.
Our third submission was from Jack Divito. He asked Priya Merchant with a pretty spectacular video. It was a video from Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer from the Office) asking Priya to prom. In the video, she starts of by telling Priya is being asked to prom, and finally reveals that she is asking on behalf of Jack Divito.
While all three submissions were thoughtful and creative, it was Jack Divito’s celebrity ask that got him the free 2 tickets to prom.
