Prom 2022

Thank You!

Prom 2022 has come to a close. Thank you to our students for coming with their dancing shoes on and having fun. We so enjoyed making memories with you. Thank you to the prom committee, including Ms. Hughes, Ms. Hall, Ms. Cross, Ms. Scott and juniors who worked on prom preparation! It was definitely a lot of hard work, but so worth it!

We also want to thank Haley Diaz from The Milestone Event Company for the beautiful flower wall that served as our photo backdrop.

Thank you to Jacob Hippert, our DJ, who kept us dancing the entire night.

Anna Bowser, RECHS Student and a student in the RCC Photography program served as our official photographer for the evening.

The SGA will hold a meeting on Thursday, May 5th, which will be our campaign meeting. If you have not had the chance to join SGA this year, and want to run for one of our four positions offered, please contact Jason Bradshaw or Jordan Hicks (Mary Hicks) for more information.

Make sure you are running for the right reasons! Voting will be held within the SGA, so if you want to run, make sure you attend that meeting and campaign! This form will serve as the elected position interest form.

Also, in preparation for the Monthly Flock staff next year, if you want to join, you should attend the May 5th meeting as well so you can be accounted for and given specific instructions. Thank you so much for your continued support!
