Fairmont prepares for a ‘Night Under the Stars’

Fairmont prepares for a Night Under the Stars

The 2013 Kettering Fairmont prom is May 4 in Trent Arena. The prom theme is “A Night in the Stars,” was chosen by the senior class by an advisory vote, and the event will run from 9 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are $20 per person and go on sale April 24. As with any prom, formal attire will be required.

Although rumors have circulated about a prom based on the popular sci-fi movie series Star Wars, the Junior Class Council and Activities Office dispel it as nothing more than a myth.

“It’s important for students to understand that the theme is not Star Wars, it’s “A Night Under the Stars,” said Corey Wilson, one of the staff members helping to organize prom. “Students in costume will not be admitted to prom.”

Although the senior class votes on the theme, the Junior Class Council ultimately decides on the theme of prom and how it will be displayed in Trent Arena.

Junior Class Council member Alex Brandt is one of the students planning prom this year. “It’s a lot of work to get this together, but it’s going to be worth it,” he said. “When you ultimately see all of the people at prom and enjoying it, it makes all the work worth it.
