One thing that can be said about COVID-19 is that having nearly all spring events cancelled last year, including prom, annual traditions are not being taken for granted this year.

Stanford was the host location for the multischool prom last Saturday. While Stanford provided the location, the prom was a group effort. The multi-school prom is usually held at the Trade Center in Lewistown, but COVID-19 made this location uncertain. A prom had not been held in Stanford since 2009.

“All of the superintendents met and had a quick discussion on how to proceed with the prom. Stanford volunteered to host the prom, and the other administrators agreed to it,” said Stanford Superintendent Brad Moore. “I wasn’t able to attend, but I have been hearing a lot of good things about the evening.”

Prom attendees went with dates from their own schools as well as other schools. Some even had a couple of dates for the Grand March.

At the start of the evening, community members, parents and grandparents circled the dance floor for the grand march, where each school went around the nicely decorated gym a couple times and then lined up to announce royalty.
