junior Emily Gonzalez asks fellow junior John Glasscock to Prom 2016
It’s that time of year again, and prom season is here for students at Churchill. Prom is coming up on April 2 and will be held in Alzafar Shrine Auditorium at 8 p.m. In the meantime, students are quickly coming up with their plans for the event and elaborate promposals.
“I proposed with an ENO hammock because he had been wanting one,” junior Emily Gonzalez said. “I was sitting in it, and he drove up and saw me. I had a sign that said ‘Will you hang with me at prom’.”
Though the proposal was interesting, she’s more excited for the actual event.
“I’m looking forward to dressing up and hanging out with my friends on the party bus we rented,” Gonzalez said.
Another proposal was done outside of the 8000 building featuring a poster saying ‘Will you take a shot with me’ and a basketball cake.
“I asked Alex Estrada who is on varsity for basketball; I wanted his proposal to incorporate basketball,” senior Kim Mata said. “I am so excited for prom becuase it going to be a time where I can get dressed up, have fun with my friends, and have a cool prom date. It’s my senior year, so I’m looking forward to having a great night.”
Others are spending their time trying to make everything go smoothly, including the proposal.
“I was walking into the band hall, and my date was standing there with my friends surrounded by balloons that had ‘Prom?’ written on them while Love on top by Beyonce played,” sophomore Ethan Kuderer said. “I hate surprises, so I helped her plan it, but it was still exciting, and I think prom will be, too.”
One unique proposal even involved a live magic trick.
“Max is a magician, and I decided to ask him to prom by writing on one of his cards I stole,” junior Julie Greene said. “I took the card he was using for the trick and switched it out with the card that said ‘Will you be my king to prom’.”
It was all a surprise, and even featured on WCTV.
“He was slightly confused but caught on and was shocked! He said yes,” Greene said.
