After a year’s worth of planning by the PHS prom committee and student government, prom was held on the evening of May 2 with the theme of ‘Rustic Romance’.
The theme ‘Rustic Romance’ entailed simple yet elegant decor, with extremely intricate centerpieces and soft browns and pastel colors throughout the conference center of Chattahoochee Technical College.
Refreshments included a lemonade and a sweet tea stand, goldfish, Chex mix, cupcakes and even an iced latte barista. In addition, attendees enjoyed a photo booth with funny props that automatically printed three pictures.
Seniors were recognized in the traditional senior walk halfway into the night. After the traditional senior walk, the 2015 Prom Court was announced. Seniors and juniors voted for their respective representatives the week before.
Princess court: Hannah Kilpatrick, Yoheiry Ripley, Alex LeMieux, Summer Riddle, Stephanie Riddle, Ginny Morris, Meredith Miller, Peyton Godfrey, and Kerrie Lee.
Prince Court: Zack Hermann, Jake Campbell, Kyle Baker, Kyle West, Andrew Ortiz, Corbin Johnson, Clay Callan, Dillon Gasaway, and Matthew Bearden.
Tucker Green and Sydney Romine were chosen to be the Prince and Princess.
Queen Court: Kari Henke, Olivia Parker, Debra Ingram, Alexis Hill, Makayla Payne, Haley Kalson, Lauren Southern, Susannah Melton, and Mikaela Peters.
King Court: Elliot Gallagher, Trip Vicente, Trevor McVey, Drew Adams, Wyatt Ingram, Josh Golden, Allen Bufford, Luke Birch, and John Holbert.
Paula Pickett and Ty Prather were this year’s Prom King and Queen.
After the prom court had their dance and a few other upbeat songs, the night ended perfectly with a slow dance. As favors, prom attendees were given tiny mason jars which read the date of prom and a bird design. It was an exemplary prom for seniors to signal the close bittersweet ending to their high school career. Personally, I went with a group of friends and really enjoyed the decor and ambiance.
