ROARING INTO PROM SEASON… CHS PROM 2016
By: Jamarria Pyatt
Prom season is in full swing! This year things are going to be a little different for Conway High School’s prom. This year the prom is being held at the new and improved venue, The Hilton Hotel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The theme for this year’s prom is going to be The Roaring 20’s. The prom committee voted and came to the decision to use The Roaring 20’s as our fun and fabulous theme. Normally, seniors do not pay for prom, however, this year seniors are having to pay because having prom at the Hilton costs six times as much as Club Boca.
So now that you know where prom is being held…what should you wear? The dress code for prom can not really be considered strict, however, girls are required to be in a dress and boys are required to be in a suit, but come on who doesn’t already come to prom dressed that way! Curious on what the entrance requirements are for your date if they do not attend CHS? Well I found out for you, if your date is over 18 and does not attend Conway High School they will be required to show an identification card at the door before being allowed to enter. If your date is over the age of 21, they are prohibited from attending the Conway High School prom.
You still have time to get everything in order for prom, so don’t stress out just yet. Prom is being held on Thursday, March 24th from 7:30pm until midnight. Unlike in years past, this year they will be crowning a prom king and queen. Conway High students will vote on prom king and queen the week before prom.
Not sure you really want to eat before working up a sweat at prom? No worries! Finger foods (fruits and veggies) and beverages will be served (iced tea, water, lemonade).
Tickets will be on sale every Wednesday during all 3 lunches. No tickets will be sold at the door! Let me repeat, NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR! Each week in February, tickets will increase by 5 dollars.
Hope to see you there! Oh and save it for the dance!
