It’s that exciting time of year again when everyone puts on their classiest formal attire and spends large amounts of money on a once-in-a-lifetime experience at their Lowry prom. This year’s prom theme is going to be Breast Cancer Awareness, representing breast cancer will be the colors pink, black, and white. It will also have a Paris time theme using the chosen breast cancer colors. Leadership has worked to produce a successful theme so everyone enjoys their most exciting time of the year. For seniors, this is one of their final memories that will stick with them as they mature to be adults.

“I’m going to have the absolute best time this year and I expect it to be the best high school memory for the class of 2012,” said Turrell Jensen

Prom will take place May 5, at the convention center. Candidates for prom have not yet been decided. Leadership expects this 2012 prom to be fun and memorable, the best spring formal yet. Many students and staff have been working to make this prom great.

“I’m looking forward to prom so much, I have a beautiful date and it should be an amazing night. Nothing better than going out wearing a tux, smiley face,” said Michael Drake.

The theme of breast cancer awareness was chosen because it’s a very creative and unique way to get the word out about the disease. The plan is to inspire people to volunteer as much time and money as possible to help support those affected by breast cancer, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but there are students at Lowry that this has touched, as it is very common. It is hoped that some of the proceedings will be donated to breast cancer, but it is not yet determined if they will be.

Prices are $50.00 for singles and $65.00 for couples. Pictures will be beginning at 7:45 p.m. and dancing will begin at 8:30 p.m. and continue on until 12:30 a.m. and a complimentary breakfast will be served at that time and an extended curfew armband will also be issued. Any incidents involving alcohol and/or drugs will be immediately turned over to the police, so don’t spoil your big night!

“I’m going to fist pump ‘til my arm falls off,” said Alex Schirrick

For many high school kids, prom is a big event, especially for the ladies. Prom is everyone’s night to be special, and it looks to be a promising pink prom to fulfill everyone’s dreams.
