The walk of fame

“A night in Paris” was the theme of the 2014 prom and after months of anticipation of this event, it is finally over.

For the seniors it was their last high school dance, and for the juniors and sophomores there are many more to come.

“The theme was amazing. The Grand March was set up and designed nicely. I loved the whole streets in Paris theme with the decorated Eiffel Towers everywhere,” Rebecca Cordell (12) said.

The Grand March started at 4 p.m. and went until 5:30 p.m. Couples took pictures at LC or met up with their group and took pictures together. The couples walked around the gym floor, which was decorated in lights, balloons and flowers. Girls had multiple things to do to get ready for prom, which can be overwhelming sometimes.

“I left my friend’s house, took a shower, [and] then I went to my cousin’s house and one of my cousins is a hairdresser so she did my hair and one of my friends helped me with my makeup, and then I put my dress on and brushed my teeth,” Rylee Ollearis (10) said.

The dance started at  6 p.m. and went until 10 p.m., and was held at the Halls of Saint George in Schererville.

“I was freaking out. I thought I was going to fall during the Grand March and I was scared of the upperclassmen because I’m a sophomore at Prom,” Ollearis said.

At Prom there was a lavish chocolate fountain with strawberries, marshmallows, bananas, Rice Krispie treats and pineapple to be dipped. The hall was dressed in balloon towers that looked like the Eiffel Tower.

“[I liked] the chocolate fountain. That was probably the best part, [and ] I hated the music.  The music was horrible; the DJ just didn’t do a great job,” Ollearis said.

Couples took pictures beforehand, went to the dance, dinner and some even did something the next day.

“Mrs. [Lisa] Moreno [Science]  did an awesome job for us seniors,” Cordell said.
