Prom is Here!

By: Jenna Rakers, Contributing Writer


Centralia High School's 2015 Prom will be held on May 2, 2015, starting at 8:00 p.m. Instead of being held at the Centralia Recreation Center, this year Prom will be located at Nic-n-Noah's. The Grand March will begin at 8:30 p.m. with the Prom Queen and King coronation immediately following the march. The theme, voted on by the Junior class, is "Once Upon a Time." The Disney princess movies inspired the class to develop this theme, which will be represented through the various decorations at the event. Celebrations has been a tremendous help with the decorations and the food for Prom this year.

"The Junior sponsors and I are very excited about the new venue for Prom and the decorations that Celebrations is helping us with to provide our students with an elegant atmosphere.  We are looking forward to making it a special night for our students," stated Danielle Bennett, Junior class sponsor.

The following students are the king and queen candidates this year:



  • Carrie Drake
  • Sylvia Romine
  • Allison Massey
  • Morgan Horn
  • Erica Arens


  • Jacob Anders
  • Logan Armontrout
  • Jacob Gramke
  • Blaine Arp
  • Lance Leverenz
