Saturday night was a night to remember for Warren County High School seniors and their dates as they filled the gym enjoying time together before graduation.
Prom was a big success this year with a large turnout. The theme was Rustic Romance and prom sponsor Linda Taylor was pleased with how everything turned out.
“It was spectacular. As you know we have had a rough couple of years recovering from COVID and things so it was really good to have things back to normal and we had a great turnout and everything turned out really well,” said Taylor. “They worked really hard and it has been a really big success. I am very pleased.”
The gym was decorated in twinkling lights, rustic barn wood, foliage, and there were chandeliers hanging from the basketball hoops. Many seniors and their dates enjoyed going out of town for dinner before the dance and had a good time. Senior Mary Margaret Stanley said she enjoyed spending her prom with her friends and dancing.
“I would say prom was really good. I love to dance so I had a great time,” said Stanley. “We took pictures downtown, we went to eat in Murfreesboro and just kind of typical stuff, but I got to be with friends and it was fun.”
Anna Eidson also enjoyed her time at the prom and thought everyone looked great.
“Everyone looked so beautiful. It is crazy seeing everybody in their fancy dresses,” said Eidson.
Prom King and Queen were voted on upon arrival and at the end of the night Uriah King and Jessica Chastain had the most votes and were crowned King and Queen. Chastain said she was honored to be chosen as Prom Queen. The two are no stranger to titles as they were also crowned Homecoming King and Queen last fall.
A slide show full of pictures of the seniors over the last four years also played Saturday night. A photo booth was available. The attendees were also able to take home a commemorative goblet so they would remember their prom.
