BCECHS hosted the 2024 Masquerade Ball for the prom. But people may be asking, why is prom so important?

Prom gives students an excuse to dress up, get out of their comfort zone, or simply have fun with family and friends. It’s also a time to let loose for one night and not think about the end of the year being right around the corner.

It’s also a time for students to celebrate being in their senior year or graduating. And to show their true selves and come out of their shell.

“Prom was one of the most memorable nights ever! My date and I had an amazing time getting ready and dancing the night away. Can’t wait to go next year!”, says Junior Megan Shumaker.

Students were able to walk around, dance, and simply enjoy themselves and show their true style.

“Prom was great! I love spending time with my friends, and I really enjoyed when we all went onto the dance floor. The videos of us dancing were funny and so was taking pictures. Everyone looked amazing! No outfit was boring, everything was unique. I can’t wait for next year’s prom”, says Junior Caliceia Clark.

This year graduates, David Utz, Taylor Sipe, Noah Barker, Sam Becker, Aria Harris, and Estrella Hernandez ran for prom court. Students who attended voted for the people they wanted as king and queen.

Congratulations to the winning couple, which was David Utz and Sam Becker.

But did everyone enjoy prom the same? Well, the answer is no. Some students thought that Prom was somewhat bland and needed to be spiced up a bit.

“It was my first time going to prom and I thought it was fun. I really loved the food and the environment was nice. The only problem was the music was okay and eventually became boring. Overall It was fun”, says Junior Tyler Tran.

So, in the end, prom was a great experience for most if not all. But, maybe a few changes could be made, maybe something more interactive, or allow students to submit song requests. But overall prom brought students together for a fun night to be with friends, or just be a couple.
