Verona Area High School students held their prom Sat-
urday, April 29, at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison
with a Masquerade theme.
For the first time, the schools prom court was gen-

will review the VAHS policies and procedures for Home-
coming and Prom courts and make a recommendation to
administrators for future dances.
Parents interested in serving on that committee can
