Senior Sarah Zachary says many of her classmates are jokesters and they wanted the prom to be funny. But she says lots of students also are intense about politics.
“We have a lot of jokesters in our grade, so they wanted it to be funny and a lot of them are really intense with politics,” Zachary told KRQE.
