Trading downtown Dallas for Frisco, the class of 2024 held its prom on Saturday at Verona Villa with many seniors spending the day getting ready for the night. 

“We started getting ready around noon,” senior Haley Liddell said. “Although prom was at 8, everyone in our group wanted to have a good time together while doing our makeup, hair, and putting on our dresses.”

For many seniors, the night is about more than the dance.

“Before prom, my mom and dad helped me get dressed with a tuxedo and I gave my date a corsage,” senior Zosh Shearer said. “Then, my date and I took pictures and ate dinner before the dance.” 

At the dance itself, students enjoyed themselves alongside their friends and other members of the graduating class.

“Getting to spend the night with my friends and dressing up together was a great time,” senior Kelly Shi said. “I think it’s a memory that will stay with me.” 

As the night went on, the excitement peaked with the crowning of Prom King (Emory Williams) and Queen (Taylor Clapp).

“It felt really good to win Prom King,” Williams said. “I can’t say I was expecting to hear my name be called, but it was super fun!”

With just one month left in the 2023-24 school year, the night also brought a twinge of sadness amidst the happiness for some seniors.

“Prom was really fun, but the whole day was kind of bittersweet in a way to me,” senior Sana Din said. “It was super fun having a last big celebration night with my friends, but sad in the sense that after this, it’s all going to be over really soon.”
