High school spring traditions return
The corsages and boutonniéres, the carefully selected gowns and tuxes, the costly updos and the painstakingly flattened cowlicks these trappings and traditions are integral to the high school formal.
The grand part of these events is the naming of the court, and the piÃƒ¨ce de résistance of a formal is the crowning of the queen and king. Lakeridge Highs prom queen and king are Noelle Foden-Vencil and Jackson Waste, respectively. The to-do took place last Saturday at the Portland Art Museum, and the theme was A Sweet Affair.
At Lake Oswego High, there are a couple of big spring events, including prom and Mayfete. Mayfete features class skits based on the annually rotating theme and a 10-girl court, one of whom will wear a tiara. This year, the event was May 2; the queen was Claire Murphy and the theme was Are We There Yet? Lake Oswegos prom is scheduled for this Saturday, and there wont be a prom king and queen.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
