It is about that time for the spring event that gets the Lecanto High School students rowdy. That event is the 2014 Prom, happening April 12 at Black Diamond from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.

Prom is always a fun time for the students to dance like there is no tomorrow and hang out with their friends at the same time.

“I can’t wait to have a good time with all my friends and seniors I know this year,” said junior Leondra Crummer.

“I am excited. It was fun last year,” said senior Summer VanQuelef.

This is a formal event, so there will be some rules to follow. Therefore, the students may not be able to do whatever they want. Also, with the appropriate behavior rules, there is a dress code the students must follow, so there is also a limit on what students can wear.

“There will be face-to-face dancing just like the homecoming dance, and as for the dress code, full length dresses for the young ladies. Guys will be in tuxedos or must have a jacket and tie. Please govern yourselves accordingly so we will not have to ask you to leave,” said Principal Jeff Davis.

Even though there are instructions to follow, the students are okay with them and admit that they will have fun anyway.

“I’m okay with the dress code. It doesn’t bother me,” said Crummer.

“I wore a long dress last year, and it wasn’t a problem. So I’m cool with it,” said VanQuelef.

The dress code may not be a problem for some students, but maybe getting the ticket might be.

“You need to have a clean slate on debts at the school, or you will not receive a prom ticket,” said Davis.
