Promption A or Promption B: Student's Choice

Owosso Student Creates His Own Prom for Students Frustrated With Changes to This Year's School-Sanctioned Event

Prom is normally on Saturday but this year it's on Friday due to scheduling issues.  Prom on Friday?  That is what some are calling a 'promblem.'  Actually, they aren't using that word at all, but some students are unhappy with the change.  So unhappy, in fact, that the prom alternative that one senior is planning, is starting to look like a pretty good 'promption.'

The Argus-Press' Brad Minor tells the whole story.  Get the highlights below.

'Promption A,' the school-sanctioned event, will be held on Friday night in Saginaw County.  Some students say that gives no time after school for getting ready, taking pictures, going to dinner, cruisin'... all the usual pre-prom things.  And those are important things.  Also, Saginaw?!

'Promption B' will be held the next weekend, on Saturday, in Owosso.  Organizer Dakota Garrison says it will be just like the usual school-sanctioned events except... better music.

He's fronted the funds for the ZCBJ Hall and will bring in a DJ, and tickets will be $25 -- $10 less than the cost of the school's event.  However, the school's event includes dinner.  So, there's that.

"I still want people to go to the school's prom," Garrison told The Argus-Press, encouraging students to choose Promption A, which is strange, since he's paying for Promption B.  Or maybe there just doesn't have to be a choice.  

Not so, if you talk to Owosso Superintendent Andrea Tuttle, who says choose Promption A and "ignore" Promption B, making it seem like Promption B isn't even a 'promption' after all, but just a party with school rules.

Students: whichever event you choose, please be smart and be safe so you can be there for your class reunion too.  (As long as it's not on Friday.)
