Now all she needs is a prom date

It’s a rite of passage.   Kids have been waiting on it for a couple of years now,so will prom take place in Charlotte Mecklenburg schools.  So many got robbed of prom because of Covid and many were hanging on every word as the decision was made.

Well, let’s dance ya’ll!!  Charlotte school officials are urging principals to proceed with caution but they will be allowing prom this year for the first time since 2019.  Board members had asked locals schools to make other plans as the pandemic raged on  but this year those restrictions have been lifted.

So here is a sad side story to this.  I, Catherine Lane, never got to go to prom:(  I was dating my (now) husband when I was in high school but he was already out of high school.  At the time Shelby High school only allowed students to go with one another to prom and he wasn’t allowed to take me because he didn’t attend there.  It’s ok.  Life worked out fine but I still have a little twang of pain every time I think about having to miss prom.
