8th Annual Prom Grand March in Ashdown April 6
The Junior class of Ashdown High School would like to invite the public to the 8th annual Prom Grand March on Saturday, April 6, at 5PM on the steps of the Little River County Courthouse.
The first Grand March originated in 2012 by 2012 AHS graduate, Miranda Hopson as a result of creating a project in her EAST class. She stated, “that her friends in Texarkana hosted a promenade before the prom and thought the idea would be something the students in Ashdown would participate.” With the help from her classmate, Olivia Mize, they set in motion the steps to approve the promenade. Now, the march has become a tradition utilizing the beautiful grounds of the historic courthouse as a favorite photo setting.
The promenade of AHS juniors and seniors in all their prom finery is the perfect “photo op” for friends and relatives to view the procession. The Prom Royalty Court will consist of ten AHS seniors. The senior class will elect a King and Queen with four attendants. The court will be presented at the march and the king and queen announced at the prom.
