SCHS Celebrates Prom for First Time in a Decade

Posted: Updated:

Prom night is celebrated by students at one high school, for the first time in around a decade.

Students at South Central High school are celebrating their prom a week later than scheduled.

The alternative high school has not had a prom in several years, but students say they asked teachers this year to reconsider.

A prom committee helped plan their event, which was re-scheduled to the Bismarck municipal country club, after snow stalled their plans on the riverboat.

Students and teachers say they do not have prom queens or kings, but they have a dinner and dance and they're happy to experience prom together.

"I think part of it is just being able to have that prom experience that every other kid that's in high school gets to have and then just the chance to get together and celebrate and get dressed up and you know have that high school experience just like everybody else." says Melissa Davis, prom advisor.

"I think all high school kids should have prom I guess." says Laura Strand/10th grade.

"We're kind of like a big family, we get along at the school." says Patience Boyce/11th grade.
