Prom 2015: A Night In New Orleans

The students at the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science got dressed up, put on their dancing shoes, and had a great time at this year's Prom.

The prom, which was entitled "A Night In New Orleans," was held at the Lion Hills Country Club in Columbus, Mississippi on Saturday, April 18. The school's junior class officers worked tirelessly to ensure that their class and their seniors would have a lovely night they would remember for the rest of their lives.

"We decided to theme it around New Orleans because we have so many students from the Mississippi Gulf Coast," said MSMS Junior Class President Raksha Chatakondi. "We wanted a theme that was different and not at all a cliche."

The students crowned John Johnson and India Yarborough as prom king and queen respectively. Wes Givens was named Prom Prince and Carley Sneed was dubbed Prom Princess.

The junior class officers, who were responsible for planning and executing the event, would like to thank the junior class sponsors, Jed Leggett, Lori Pierce, and Tina Wagner for all their help and guidance. They would also like to specially thank MSMS visual art teacher Angie Jones for all the hard work she contributed to decorating the prom.

"Everyone really had a blast," said Chatakondi. "I think our juniors will have a hard time following this!"
