Hailey Taylor, Staff Writer – The 2015 Lecanto High School [LHS] Prom will be April 25, from 8  p.m. until midnight at Black Diamond Ranch clubhouse. Admission is $25 for seniors and $40 for juniors.

The theme of this year’s prom is “A Diamond Gala.” The decorations are all being made by the Student Government Association [SGA].

“There are going to be elegant decorations, a silver sparkly wonderland,” sophomore Zoe Surrency said.

SGA is getting ready for prom. They have handed out invitations to seniors, made the decorations, and more.

Stephanie Hill, SGA leader, said that this year’s prom, just like homecoming, is going to take it to the next level.

“This year’s prom is going to shine like a diamond,” Hill said.

“The prom theme changes every year, but this one is going to be good, ” junior Arianna Gonzales said.

Prom is a school event which means there is a dress code. Females are required to wear floor-length dresses and males have to wear a tux or suit with a tie. Shoes must appropriate for a dance – no flip-flops or athletic shoes.

Students going to prom look forward to being with friends and making memories.

“Yes, I’m going to prom. I look forward to seeing all my friends,” senior Logan Winter said.

“Prom is spending time with friends and making good memories,” junior Brittney Bloom said.

There are students who are choosing not to attend the prom.

“I don’t care for prom because I do not like dancing,” senior Michael Eister said.

Prom is going to have a bunch of different refreshment options.

“There is going to be a candy bar, regular drinks, a coffee bar, and a chocolate fountain,” Hill said.

Guests from other schools may attend, they have to be under 21 years old and they have to get a Guest Application on file with a copy of their driver’s license to be able to attend the prom.

Prom is an opportunity that you do not want to miss, especially seniors, it is one of their last memories as a high school student.

“You should go to Prom because you’ll regret it later in life if you don’t, ” Winter said.
