Prom on the Porch

Throwing her horns up, senior Maddie Hoffman has a “Zoom prom” with her friends. Hoffman and her friends dressed up to video chat on Zoom and celebrated prom together by coming up with funny senior superlatives. “My favorite part was getting to spend that time with my sister.

I think celebrating prom in a different way was just what everyone needed at a time like this,” Hoffman said.
