Senior Honor Night Aims To Keep Students Safe The Night Of Graduation
Senior Honor Night is June 4th this year. The event is at The Hub Family Entertainment Center and goes from 8:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Volunteer Sue Orr talked about all the fun things students will be doing and the types of prizes they can win.
“There will be bingo, karaoke, bumper car rides, and all kinds of stuff for the kids to do,” said Orr. “There are prizes, scholarship prizes to Montana University system schools, and dorm room refrigerators. I think they are giving away TV’s, XBOX’s, and all kids of things.”
Orr says this event has been going on for years in an effort to keep kids safe the night they graduate.
“30 years ago before the party started there were kids that were going out and getting drunk and getting killed in car crashes and things like that,” Orr said. “Parents got together back then and they have been doing it every year since then. It is just a great way for kids to be safe after they graduated from high school that day.”
Prizes will be given away at 1 a.m. so the kids attending feel obligated to stay rather than go out and get in trouble. The cost per student is $25.
