PA Cyber announces three venues for spring prom

Feb 5, 2018

Students choose 2018 prom theme

PA Cyber announced it will once again host junior-senior proms at three locations in Pennsylvania, giving students more of an opportunity to participate in a perennial high-school experience.  

Supervisor of student events, Jane Camp, said the school’s prom committee secured sites in Pittsburgh aboard the Gateway Clipper, King of Prussia at the Crowne Plaza and Hershey at the Hershey Lodge for the events that will take place in late April and early May.

“Prom is always an amazing evening and one of my favorite events of the year,” she said. “Students arrive shy and reserved – many don’t know their peers and are unsure of what they are getting themselves into – but they leave having taken endless selfies and groupies, exchanging phone numbers with new friends and acquaintances and having gained a new confidence in themselves along with new memories.” 

Camp said the students chose this year’s theme: heroes and villains and, whether in a Batman or Catwoman mood, participants are sure to have a great time at the springtime gala, which includes dinner, dessert, dancing, entertainment and a prom favor.

The cost for the prom is $45 per person; the prom committee will email tickets to participants. Students who are juniors or seniors are encouraged to learn details by consulting Prom in the Prom Course Card on their dashboard in Buzz and reminded to register at least two weeks prior to the event so that they receive their tickets on time.

Camp said the school produced a video to reveal the theme of the prom once all of the students’ votes were tabulated.

Last year, 263 prom-goers boarded the Gateway Clipper in Pittsburgh, 125 attended the prom in Hershey and Allentown hosted 100 students and their guests.
