Junior Prom Creates NYC Nightclub


On Saturday April 6th the Junior Class at Walt Whitman High School celebrated their annual Junior Prom.  The South Cafeteria at Walt Whitman was transformed into “Studio 14” for the event.  From the lighted bars to the decorative couches and pumping DJ the Junior Class felt as if they had been transported to their very own NYC nightclub.  The freshman and sophomore class officers served the food and drinks so the junior officers could enjoy themselves the entire evening.

The event would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the Junior Class Officers and the Advisor Tom Donlon.  President Kristen Riordan, Vice President Derek Zadrozny, Secretary Emily Stasko, Treasuer Yousaf Naqvi and Assistants Kolawole Bamgbelu “KB”, Jennifer Fenwick, and Matthew Campanella spent countless hours over the past year crafting and designing their prom.  

The Junior Class officers would also like to extend a special thank you to all those who volunteered their services in setting up the day before the prom and those who helped the day of the event.   Without their generosity the prom would not have been as successful as it was.

"The students were all beautifully dressed and it was obvious that they all had a great time," said Principal Acker.  "There is nothing more enjoyable than spending time with the Walt Whitman high school students during events such as this.  It was a wonderful evening."
