Seniors typically kick off the end of the year with senior assassin, soccer games, and of course prom. This year’s Godwin Prom will take place May 20 in the gymnasium.

The Junior SCA members in charge of putting it together this year are Suzanne Bunce, Rebecca Rodgers, Brynn Backer, and Devon Furash. Last year’s theme was “Interstellar,” and this year the junior class has chosen the theme “Enchanted Forest.”

They plan to decorate the gym with trees outlining the gymnasium and lights hanging from them. Instead of the casino games which have made appearances in past proms, the SCA members plan to set up the commons with arcade games such as air hockey, pool, skee ball, and foosball.

Their goal is to create a balance between a theme that is romantic, magical, and elegant for dates, and also appeals to everyone attending with the fun aspect of the arcade games.

The Junior class sponsors, social studies teacher Bobby Knaup and business and marketing teacher Ashley Mott, have been working alongside the Junior SCA members, as well.

“I think it’s a very thoughtful theme. Our SCA is putting a lot of time into it; they really want it to be successful,” said Knaup.

The SCA has been working on the theme for the past six months, and Mott agrees that the officers have been contributing a lot.

“We want to do something different and creative,” said Mott in regards to the theme and the decision to switch from casino to arcade games.

As we approach May, the preparations will begin and the SCA will be working harder than ever to get everything ready.

Junior SCA member Suzanne Bunce said, “I’m most looking forward to watching everyone enjoy themselves on prom night after all the hard work we’ve put into it.”
