I would say Ireland, it’s probably the most beautiful country there is.

Senior Student Council members fought long and hard for this year’s prom location. With a 4-1 vote, the school board approved Student Council’s plan to have prom at Schweitzer.

However, there are no rules about transportation to the venue. Senior class Secretary Treasurer Markie Franck said the process of getting the school board’s approval took several months, but senior Student Council members had been considering the option since last year.

Youngdahl said, would add “an unnecessary degree of risk” because there are “terrific venues” in town. An incident he cited was Jon Brownell’s recent motorcycle accident. “If a responsible adult can have an accident,” Youngdahl said, “it could happen to anyone.” “Community members disapproved at first because they didn’t agree with putting so much responisbility on high school students,” said Senior Class President Erica McKay. “But I have faith in them and didn’t doubt for a second that they would act responsibly.” Youngdahl also confirmed that he hasn’t heard a reaction from the public, which often means that there are no complaints, he said. “It will be a fun night at an amazing location to conclude our high school career,” said McKay.

Hawaii, because it’s nice and warm.
