On Friday, April 25, Merion Mercy Academy’s juniors and seniors hopped on their magic carpets and flew to the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia for this year’s prom. The theme, as voted by the juniors and seniors in a landslide victory, was Arabian Nights. Although the weather forecast for Friday was a humid and rainy night, the prom was still a great night for all of the guests. “Although the weather didn’t cooperate as what I wish it was, I didn’t let it ruin my night!” said Lauren Uveges (‘15).

Many girls were so eager to celebrate prom night that they began planning for prom months in advance. A special Facebook group allowed students to share pictures of their dresses with each other to preview the big night’s special fashions. “I always like when people post their dresses in the Prom dress group, it’s so much fun to look at them!” said Olivia Nostrant (‘14). In addition, many girls tried to come up with the best “prom-posal”, a unique way to ask a boy to go to prom.  This year saw a variety of prom-posals that demonstrated the creativity of Merion’s students. Some of these promposals included decorating cars, writing witty phrases on poster board, or simply surprising their date at his home!

Prom 2014 had one of the largest attendance rates  in recent years. The guests enjoyed great food, lots of dancing, and an all-around great time. “I had a great time at prom this year! It was a great night to spend with my friends and it is something I will always remember,” said Victoria Principato (‘14).

By the end of the night, each couple had had a great time, whether it was their first prom or their last! Madeline Juliano and her date won Prom Queen and King. Prom ‘princesses’ included seniors Amy Weiss, Kerlyn Rodriguez, and Rodesha Washington. Special thanks goes to Mr. Pidot and the Prom Planning Committee for putting together such a fantastic night!
