Each year, The Hesston Record finds a unique way to cover Hesston High Prom.
This year, we are taking an in-depth look at the behind-the-scenes aspect of Prom. We are highlighting parents, teachers and students who dedicate months time and resources to making one evening come together.
Diane Jost, one of this year’s Prom Sponsors, said students can look forward to a a few changes.
“The theme this year is ‘A night to cut loose’ based on Footloose. It isn’t a western theme; it’s vintage,” she said.
Also, this year, Jost said community members will have more options for Promenade.
“We are going to have a set of bleachers outside for people who are interested in the cars, and the Red Carpet is going to go through the Auxiliary gym again this year,” she said.
The change to Promenade came after inclement weather last year.
“This way, we don’t have to have an alternate plan for bad weather, we can keep people comfortable and make easier changes if we need to,” she said.
