Walking down “Electric Avenue” to “Circus”

Prom was held April 24, at the Shawnee Civic Center. The theme this year was “Electric Avenue.”

During the dance Misha Modiri and Abdul Ankrah were crowned prom king and queen, followed by first runners- up Matt Broll and Rachael Zdeb, and second runners-up Christian Buller and Sandy Tickles.

“I was surprised,” Modiri said. “The announcer, Alex Geis, was right in front of me and, when he stepped aside after he said my name, my mouth dropped.”

The other winner, Abdul Ankrah was also as surprised.

“I was so surprised and shocked,” Ankrah said, “ I want to say thanks to everyone who voted for me. I really appreciated it.”
Following prom, After-Prom was held at Northwest. The mall was decorated to look like a circus tent.

“After Prom was so much fun. I won a dollar in the money pit, some tickets at the ring toss on the sod bottles, and played all of the casino games,” says junior Ashley Dollard, “I had an outside date and he said that he had a lot of fun and he had never been to anything like it.”
