MHS-0064For the last several weeks, we have been celebrating prom with our senior spokesmodels. WOW – at the beautiful dresses and girls. The guys in their sharp tuxes have been so cooperative and fun.

Prom has become a HUGE deal for high school students everywhere, so I thought just for fun, we’d find out where prom came from.

MHS-0107“The why of prom’s origin story is simple to answer. Prom, short for promenade, “the formal, introductory parading of guests at a party,” began in the mid- to late 1800s at colleges and universities in the Northeast to promote social etiquette and manners in each year’s graduating class.” Who knew right? I went on the red “Early citations of prom link it to the annual Ivy League tradition of “‘presentation week,’ during which formal dress and dancing accompanied a promenade concert.” After the turn of the century, prom events expanded to high schools, as well, for much the same reason they were started on the university level.”
