Trigg County High School held their prom at the Trigg County High School gymnasium on Saturday, April 28. Students were welcomed into the event in red carpet style at the annual Grand March. This is a prom tradition in Trigg County.
Each couple or individual is announced before walking into the event. This allows for parents and the community to see every student and get pictures as they walk in. It also makes every student feel special as they enter.
This year's theme for prom was Hollywood. The gym was decorated with black, red, white, and gold accents.
The grand march featured a red carpet for students to walk on before entering the dance floor.
After the Grand March, parents are asked to leave, unless they have a child on the prom court. Students are given time to settle in before the prom court takes the stage.
The prom court for this year included last year's king, Smith Rogers, and Queen, Libby Redd. Senior representatives included Ashlen Burcham escorted by Will Sauerman and Isabella Erickson escorted by Tyson Bush. Prom king and queen candidates are juniors. This year they included Lacey Alexander escorted by Caleb Federspeil, Amelia Hare escorted by Matthew Walker, and Katelyn Johnson escorted by Jackson Hiter.
This year's prom king is Matthew Walker. Walker is the son of Kristy and Mike Walker. He is involved in TSA/STLP and the BETA club in the high school. Walker is also a member of the Thoroughbred Academy. When he graduates, Walker plans to attend Murray State University.
The prom queen is Lacey Alexander. She is the daughter of Perry and Denise Alexander. She is a member of the Drama, Art, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Interact Clubs in the high school. She is a member at Silom United Methodist Church. Alexander plans to earn her Associate's Degree at Hopkinsville Community College upon graduation.
Once the king and queen were announced, the remaining guests were asked to leave and students began to dance and enjoy their prom night.
