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

    “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.
