Paige Daly, Staff Writer – 12 Lecanto High School [LHS] seniors have been nominated by their fellow classmates for the 2018 prom court. After gathering votes from the class of 2018, the Student Government Association [SGA] determined who had the most votes.
The male nominees are Brent Allan, Sam Atchinson, Camden Powers, Liam Wolfe, Wesley Heinz, and Alejandro Arevalo.
The female nominees are Faith McKenna, Breise Teitelman, Amaris Cruz, Morgan Davis, Brianna Gram, and Andrea Javier.
The prom court candidates were shocked when they found out they were nominated by their class.
“I was just kind of like ‘oh that’s pretty cool’ and was happy for the other people that got on court too,” said Allan
“I was actually really surprised but happy that I made it onto court,” said Cruz.
With the dance approaching on April 21, prom week has been occurring to get students into the spirit. Students are able to dress up according to the theme for that day. The prom court nominees are especially hyped for the week’s events.
“I am getting more into the spirit of things by trying to find a more creative approach to the week,” said Wolfe.
The candidates were chosen not only because of popularity but more importantly, because of their kindness and respect that they show to others.
“Don’t beg for people to vote for you because that’s not what will get you on [prom court]. Talk to new people, be outgoing,” said Davis
“Just be nice to people. Make sure to keep in touch with a lot of people throughout high school,” said Cruz. “If you are just yourself, you’ll attract the right people and maybe they’ll vote for you when things like this happen.”
Prom king and queen can only be voted for by prom attendees. Tickets are available to purchase online.
