A Night of Stars

Many James River High upperclassman girls might agree that the most stressful yet magical event of the school year is the evening that occurs every May: prom.

This year, our school’s prom took place on Saturday, May 16th at the Greater Richmond Convention Center from 7-11 pm. The dance was themed “Galaxy- A Night of Stars,” and featured a large ballroom decorated with lights, stars, and balloons.

Music for the evening was provided by the Mid Atlantic Professional DJ Association. Also provided for the guests were refreshments, including punch, cookies, and a candy bar. A photo booth was available for attendees to use, in addition to a photographer roaming around the dance and snapping candid shots.

After seniors participated in nomination and voting processes in weeks prior, seniors Benjamin Caracciolo and Camryn Fitzgerald were crowned as this year’s Prom King and Queen.

This night would not have been a success without the efforts of Mr. Joyner, Mr. Ellick, the administrative staff, faculty, and Junior Class Council. Check out some photos below!
