Warren County High School offered its seniors inspiration on Wednesday with its annual Prom Fashion Show.
“This is something seniors look forward to every year,” said Linda Taylor, WCHS prom sponsor. “Because of the pandemic, we had to go virtual this year. That way, students can watch from their rooms and parents can watch from their homes. I think everyone enjoyed it.”
Everything from an assortment of lovely gowns, shoes and jewelry to tuxedos were modeled by senior students courtesy of Upton’s Bridal and Formal Boutique. The event is presented by the prom committee in an effort to get the students excited about the prom scheduled for May 1.
Selected as models for this year’s show were Rylee Ryan, Madelyn Stubblefield, Nuka Ramirez, Kataen Shockley, Naomi Jones, Alyssa Boles, Alaura Bivens, Jana Denning, Olivia Chmielewski, Gretchen Stuart, Kadence Ledbetter, Gracie Cowen, Yaire Valadez, Claire Brooks, Sydney Cook and Andrea McCormick.
“The difficult part is picking the models,” said Taylor. “We have more than 400 seniors this year but only a few can be in the show. Sometimes it’s difficult to pick and choose. I try to select a variety to represent the senior population. Some are into sports, some are in the National Honor Society, some are in clubs, different ethnicities, etc.”
Escorts were Chance Hale and Marvin Alamilla.
Emcee was Dante Grayson.
Musical entertainment was offered by Samantha Jennings, who performed as models changed into their second gowns for the event.
“Samantha did a wonderful job,” said Taylor. “She was really nervous. Originally, it was planned to be a duet with another student. He got quarantined. She was amazing solo. She is very talented and did a wonderful job. Grayson also emceed solo due to a second presenter being quarantined. He did a wonderful job.”
