Students, community sail away at Paradise Island-themed prom

It felt a little bit like summer last Saturday night in Wessington Springs as a full gymnasium took in the tropical-themed prom night titled “Paradise Island.”  The junior class turned the school’s gym into an island-inspired oasis of turquoise waters and palm trees, providing a private isle for the large crowd in attendance to see local students dressed in their best.

After the grand march ended, high school students enjoyed a dance as well as a fun night of bowling on Main Street at Starlight Bowling.
