Jefferson High students had only been waiting for, like, a year. On Saturday, May 8, prom finally arrived. Some 156 students entered the White Barn at the county fairgrounds and marched through a “Secret Garden”-themed arch. Royalty were introduced, a queen and king named. Then, parents (and their masks) exited, and kids danced into the night. “It was a blast,” said Gracie Leiva, a junior who helped plan the event. “It was lots of work, but totally worth it.” Her co-organizer Ellen McLean notes that, despite the short planning window, ticket sales and donations yielded as much money as in previous years. Credit pent-up prom demand.
