No way this isn’t happening.’ I didn’t want it at first because I was nervous,” senior Caleb Greene said.
“I was so shocked, it was the last thing I expected. I had actually decided to stay up on the top floor so that I could watch the coronation, one hundred percent sure I wasn’t going to be crowned,” senior Ren Rozzel said.
These were the reactions of seniors Caleb Greene and Ren Rozzel when their names were announced as the 2019 Prom king and queen. Neither of them could believe what they were hearing and were surprised to have been chosen.
“Thanks for electing me prom king. Thanks for the opportunity,” Greene said.
Greene isn’t originally from Warsaw. He moved here from Tennessee in June of 2017, though he was familiar with Warsaw before he moved. Even though he hasn’t lived here very long he doesn’t plan on staying very long after graduation. About 10 days after graduation he heads off to Basic for the Airforce. Greene has big goals and a bright future ahead of him.
“I hope that my career in air force is successful and to own a three bedroom house and have two kids. A boy and a girl,” said Greene.
Rozzel came to Warsaw her eighth grade year. She plans on getting her associates in baking and pastry, and eventually starting her own cafe or bakery.
Even before being crowned queen that night, Rozzel said her last prom was already very special.
“The theme was very original and I loved the decor as well as the venue. Also, the caterers (R-Bar) made me a special dish because I was vegetarian, it was a beautiful pasta that the cook brought me himself,” she said.
Guests were bussed to Weathered Wisdom Barn in Preston for the 2019 Bohemian-inspired event on April 20.
“It was very colorful and rustic,” junior Samantha Blake said.
Most of the prom guests would agree that the juniors did a great job of setting up and decorating for the event.
“I liked the rocks with our names on them at our seats,” sophomore Breanna Shaw said.
The junior girls scheduled their appointments around the set up, even going early so everyone would have plenty of time to get ready and do whatever needed to be done to get ready before the special night ahead. These juniors included Regan Shelby, Kiersten Grove, Kya Schepker, Becky Petesch, Jessica Dwyer, Lerran Yoder, Aubrie McRoberts, Payge Adair, and Rayni Simons
“The junior girls did quite a bit and helped get it all done. It went pretty smoothly, we were down at Preston at five a.m. that morning and it took us five hours to get it all done,” said Art teacher and junior class sponsor, Jennifer Greene.

“I think that Mrs. Greene and the junior class Student Council did a fantastic job putting it all together and I don’t think they could have put any more work into then they already did,” senior Jordan Plybon said.
As for others, they were satisfied with being able to go with their friends, eat some good food, and being able to dance on the dance floor.
“I had a great time going with Ally Estes,” said senior Robert McMurtry said.
“I liked the dinner and the venue, it was set up really nice” senior Jessie Glenn said.
“The food was delicious, especially the steak,” senior Brianna George said.
Senior Dayvon Bruce said the dancing was the best part of the night.
“Get jiggy with it,” he said.
