  • A new place for prom

    Prom is going to be different this year, said prom coordinator and Harrison County High School teacher Jenny Nichols.

    The biggest change, she said, is the location.

    After years of transforming the high school gym into a dance floor, this year’s prom will be at The Prizing House on Church Street.

    “It’s going to be really nice,” Nichols said Monday morning. “This, by far is a more formal event than anything we could do in the gym.”

    Nichols said 432 tickets have been bought.
