Brynn Pruett, Staff Writer

This year’s prom was held at Martin’s Auto Museum and Event Center. The venue has a voluminous ballroom, dining area, outdoor patio, and an auto museum full of cars from a variety of decades. The cars were also open to take photos if taken with care. An anonymous junior reports, “It was so cool to be able to see vehicles from past decades.” 

The theme of the prom was “A Night Under the Stars.” There was a Promposal competition: you had to submit your proposal to the prom Instagram, ths.prom.2023, and the best promposal couple would win two free tickets to the prom. The winners were, Kaily Ayala and Bryan Chavez, seniors. 

This year’s prom royalty was:

Prom Queen: Naima Nielsen, senior

Prom King: Luis Parra Cruz, senior

Prom Princess: Joy Villavicencio, junior

Prom Prince: Deigo Cruz, junior
