Dancing the Night Away: Prom 2017


By: Lori Anderson

Prom: one of the most talked about events of the year. East Wake’s prom took place on April 22, 2017 at the Doubletree by Hilton in downtown Raleigh. Students enjoyed a theme of Glitter and Gold, organized by East Wake’s SGA. Decorations involved a fountain, golden-covered tables laced with candles, and even a fun-filled photo booth complete with glittery top hats. Staff and students alike danced to trendy songs and made their requests of the DJ. Students commented that is was definitely a night to remember, and they were happy to attend.

King and Queen! Janetlys Rodriguez and Jaelan Hand were crowned prom queen and king. They shared a dance directly after the announcement.

Over the course of the evening, students voted for their choice of Prom King and Queen. The court consisted of five choices for king and five choices for queen. King nominees were Julian Alexander, Isaiah Pulley, Conner Goodall, Bradley Huskins, and Jaelan Hand. Queen nominees included Janetlys Rodriguez, Ana Casas, Alexa Byrd, Natassja Bullock, and Erin Matthews. Ultimately, Jaelan Hand and Janetlys Rodriguez were crowned king and queen.

Prom 2017 was definitely one for the books, and students won’t quickly forget this year’s moments of glitter and gold.
