A Virtual Night to Remember
In lieu of a traditional prom, the Immaculate Heart High School Junior Board organized a virtual “MASKerade” prom for their classmates on Friday, May 22.
Supervised by junior class faculty moderator Stacie Miller, Junior Board members Violet Hill, Perla Rand, Cleo Riley, Kate Rodgers, Danielle Sanchez and Stephanie Yoon all worked together for weeks to create the digital event. Then, to mimic the typical prom experience, they sent out electronic invitations and asked classmates to RSVP with their guests.
On the night of the event, Miller and the Junior Board, welcomed the attendees in a large virtual gathering. After the opening ceremony, participants then broke off into smaller “prom table” groups to talk, dance and celebrate. There was also a competitive element to the evening, with a trivia game designed by the Junior Board as well as “Best Dressed” and “Best Dance Moves” awards. Junior Janine Medina stole the show and earned the “Best Dressed” title with her matching geometric blue outfit and mask.
The “crowning” moment of the evening came as the attendees all returned to the larger gathering to watch as the seniors on prom court received their tiaras from their families—a surprise arranged in secret by Miller.
Immaculate Heart congratulations to the senior prom court Kylie Beaart, Lola Dutcher, Samantha Hutchinson, Kiera Martin, Canela Roey and Kaitlyn Tunick, and thanks all those who made “MASKerade 2020” a virtual night to remember!
