RACINE — Southern Local High School prom candidates have been selected and will begin their Prom Walk, along with fellow classmates, between 7-8 p.m. April 23 at Southern Local High School in Racine.
Prom Walk is an opportunity for family members and friends to take photos and see the venue before prom begins.
Prom is to many high school seniors the last big hurrah before graduation. The students who attend Southern’s prom are expected to enjoy an elegant evening to the theme of “Rustic Romance.” The auditorium, under the direction of prom advisor Junie Maynard, is being transformed for the evening.
She said she is excited about the plans and added that “things are taking shape.” Assisting with the preparation are members of the community, as well as students and staff.
“It is going to look even better than I could have imagined. It is going to be magical,” Maynard said. “I want the students to have a wonderful evening in a safe environment, and make lasting memories.”
The decorations are so special, she said, that Maynard thought they should be shared with the rest of the students and has scheduled time from noon to 2 p.m. Friday for that to happen. A Disney princess provided by Wolfe Mountain Entertainment will be on hand as a special treat.
“I want everyone to enjoy the effort and creativity that has been put into the decorations,” Maynard said, “and I especially hope the seniors will be delighted when they walk into ‘Rustic Romance’ this Saturday.”
