One of the most memorable events of every student’s life is coming up: prom.

Prom is one of the few nights where students (mostly upperclassmen) can dress to the nines and dance the night away.

This year, prom is April 27 at the Lapeer Country Club.

With less than a month left to prepare, students are anticipating a fun night.
