Glitz and Glamor pre-prom dinner to be held at school

Joseph Mitmesser

Prom is a special night that is a staple in all high schoolers’ lives. From the sparkly fun dresses to the blaring music, prom has always been the last hurrah for many of our seniors here at GRC being the last high school dance for them. 

With expectations being so high for this annual dance it becomes one of the biggest tasks for staff members between the planning and effort that has to go into it to make it as amazing as it is. These shoes may seem impossible to fill, but not for Sherri Reed. 

Sherri Reed has been taking charge of the role as prom coordinator for six years now and has never failed to amaze us with how spectacular she makes prom.

Every year she makes it her goal to make this night as unforgettable as possible. Ms. Reed never fails to excel all expectations, and even this year purchased king and queen chairs for picture opportunities.

This year Ms. Reed is going above and beyond with the newest addition to this magical night, a catered meal being held before prom.

“I have been thinking about it for a few years now and I know that it’s a hassle for some kids to have to make reservations and drive to Lexington plus it costs a lot of money to go out to eat before,” she said. “I just thought it would be nice to have a fancy dinner for everyone who wants to come.”

The Glitz & Glam Dinner will consist of grilled chicken, pork tenderloin, a potato, salad, mac and cheese, a vegetable, and a dessert.

The dinner will be held in the Flex room, beginning at 7:00.

Dinner tickets are $5 and will be sold at the same time as prom tickets. They will not be sold at the door.

Ms. Reed has high hopes going into the dinner and striving to make this an annual tradition here at GRC in the upcoming years.

“If we have a great show out,” she said, “then I would love to continue doing it for future proms.”
