 Olivia Ellis -Mustangs Ahead

Prom was Friday at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota. At prom Mustangs had fun dancing, taking pictures in the photobooth, and eating.

The prom is organized by the LRHS Junior Advisory Board (JAB).  JAB adviser and science teacher Tana Phelps said the prom’s success was a collective effort.

“The students all seemed to have enjoy themselves at prom and that would not have been possible without our mustang family,” she said. “Thank you all!”

LRHS Principal Dustin Dahlquist echoed Phelps’ sentiment.

“It was a banner night for the Mustangs,” he said. “We can certainly be sure that the students had so much fun and enjoyment that night.  It was fantastic to see and hear the joy and laughter from everyone there.  Great teamwork!”
