This is an interesting idea. Aquin Catholic High School in Freeport, Illinois, arranges prom dates for their students. For the past 100 years, students have allowed themselves to be paired with their classmates through a random Lottery.
Junior Sedona Smith tells the Freeport Journal Standard: “It’s a cool thing that we do by choosing to keep with tradition each year. I’m excited to have something to tell my own kids someday, and for those of us as junior and seniors, we are already like family and something like this just brings us closer.”
A school spokesman says: “The students like the tradition of the prom draw and it takes away the nervousness of finding a date and they all just get to enjoy the evening of the prom.”
I think I like this idea. It could promote inclusion and could bring everyone together. You might hang out with someone that you’ve never really talked to.
I wonder if something like this could work here. It also takes away from the stress of elaborate promposals and stuff like that.
