The Edmonson County High School after prom party will take place at the high school this year on Saturday April 27th. The after prom party is coordinated by the Youth Services Center with the help of the Kentucky Agency Against Substance Abuse, the Family Resource Center, and several community sponsors.
This program is for all Edmonson County juniors and seniors and their prom dates. “Our goal is to give students a safe place to celebrate their prom night in a drug and alcohol free environment,” said Youth Services Center Coordinator Morgan Esters. “We have a night planned that is full of prizes, games, food and fun.”
Activities this year include inflatable courses, a Nerf gun war zone, and several mini games. The Board of Education gave a donation for food this year which will include all you can eat pizza, subs and candy. Every junior and senior student is guaranteed to get cash just for attending. This year prizes include an iPad, Apple Watch, and many gift cards, tickets, and games.
According to the Youth Services Center, students will need to check in at the high school by 12 a.m. Parents and guardians of students that do not arrive by 12 a.m. will be contacted to ensure those students are where they need to be and safe. All students will be released at 3 a.m. and the Youth Services Center encourages carpooling and parent pick up for safety.
If parents or students have any questions about the prom after party they can contact Morgan Esters or any of the Youth Services Center staff at 270-597-3878 or on Facebook. Forms for the event are at the Youth Services Center and the main office at the high school. Forms are due back by April 25th.
