The theme and venue of this year’s prom will be announced on March 15, where twelve students will be modeling prom wear in the quad.

The twelve students modeling at Prom Expo are all seniors. Eight were chosen from the list of top ten students, while the other four students were asked from the special education classes. Financial Clerk and ASB advisor for prom, Kathy Deal, had proposed the idea of first asking the top ten students whether they would like to partake in Prom Expo.

Deal told The Lariat that “you don’t have to be the perfect size two or a star athlete” to be a part of Prom Expo.

She wanted to emphasize the importance of showcasing “everyday” students by giving the top ten seniors the opportunity to be a part of Prom Expo instead of having “the same kids in every single election.”

Deal added, “everybody deserves to be celebrated.”

The junior class in ASB later suggested that students from special education classes be invited to take part in Prom Expo. Four random students were invited, including senior, Hector Bugarin. Deal revealed that when ASB invited Bugarin, his mother, who is also his aid, had cried hearing the news. Both Hector and his mother were very excited, and Deal teared up telling The Lariat that ASB was doing a “great thing.”

Top ten senior, Persephone Rodriguez, was also very excited about being in Prom Expo.

When asked about the invitation, Rodriguez said, “I feel appreciated, I guess. Nerds can show that they’re beautiful.”

However, despite the positive responses, the idea of first inviting the top ten students did receive some backlash. Some students complained that this process was unfair, but Deal disagreed. By choosing students with this method, Deal said we would be bringing “civil service back into our culture.”

The same process of choosing students to model for Prom Expo may or may not change next year. ASB juniors oversee prom expo each year so it will be up to the next year’s junior class.
