April 9 is a date that remains highlighted, circled, and ultimately unavoidable on almost every teenager’s calendar this year - with the Johnson prom, Reagan prom, and the ACT all set for that fateful Saturday.
“I’m going to take the ACT on April 9. I probably will miss prom because I’ll be busy studying to make sure [of] what I’m supposed to be doing for the test,” junior Lillian Bautista said. “That does determine what college I’m going to get into. So it’s very important for me to prioritize it.”
