Prom, longtime prom tradition, returns.

Prom, longtime prom tradition, returns.

Along with school being closed year due to COVID-19, BCHS Prom was cancelled to the disappointment of both students and parents. It returned Friday night along with the traditional walkthrough where guests could watch students arriving to prom and get final photos before they entered. To create more space, the event was held in the front, the parking lot served as observation area. Students emerged from the auditorium, introduced as always by Coach Randy Thompson. They would then proceed down the ramp around the school and enter through the front door.
