Wiggins High School held prom on Saturday, April 26, at the Longmeadow Event Center, and following the dance, the junior class held After Prom at the Wiggins Event Center.
“It was great; it was by far the best high school dance I have ever attended,” said prom king Levi Shutts. Shutts was very happy about winning prom king, and said it was a very good surprise that happened at the end of his senior year. His favorite part of prom was that it didn’t feel like he was at the school, and he thought that it was a lot more fun at Longmeadow.
Prom was decorated by Longmeadow and a few members of the junior class, and the theme was “A Touch of Class.” The decorations consisted of white table cloths and flowers as the centerpieces, and they had “A Touch of Class” projected on the wall. “It felt like we were in a five-star hotel ballroom,” said sophomore Laura Walker.
Prom queen Ashley Motley thought that the dance was awesome; she thought that the music was good, she enjoyed the amount of people that attended, and she had a very good time with her date. “I was honored to win prom queen, it was super exciting and surprising,” said Motley.
After prom this year consisted of many activities that the students could participate in. They had a photo booth, a giant boxing ring, an obstacle course, giant Jenga, a mechanical bull, and ping pong. The gifts ranged from TVs to gift cards, and names were drawn to decide who won the gifts. Motley also had a very good time at after prom; she loved the activities, but her favorite activity by far was the photo booth.
Approximately one hundred students attended prom, which is a major increase compared to past years.
