Lincoln-Way Central Crowns King and Queen
Tuesday, May 10, 2016

On Saturday, May 7th, Lincoln-Way Central students attended their Prom at the Odyssey in Tinley Park. The "Come Fly with Me" theme was celebrated with a balloon launch at the end of the night, although the highlight of the dance occurred at 9 PM, when two students, Danny Gengo and Abby Devries, were elected by their peers as Prom King and Queen.

When asked what her favorite part of the night was, Devries' answer was enthusiastic. "Being Prom queen," she said. She had picked out the fourth dress she tried on, a long pink gown, and was happy to have additional accessories (crown and sash) to display at the dance.

Devries and Gengo attended the dance together, however, this wasn't Gengo's first nomination or win. Back in September, he'd also taken home the crown as Homecoming King.

Cindy Sikora, Junior Class Sponsor, says, "Prom was a wonderful evening for everyone involved. Everything was lovely from the decorations to the beautifully dressed students. All in all, it was an evening filled with many memories that I am sure they will cherish for years to come."
