Bishop Stang students leave for prom in style

May 25, 2018

Before heading off to Boston for prom night celebrations, Bishop Stang’s graduating class walked to the buses in style during a pre-prom promenade on May 25.

With dozens of seniors decked out in their prom best, each prom couple introduced themselves on stage inside the school’s gymnasium before walking down an aisle packed with photo-hungry parents and friends.

It was all in advance of students’ departure to senior prom, held this year at the Boston Copley Hotel.

“I can’t wait to dance -- I’m a party animal,” said Jordyn Jasparro as she stood in line to get her photo taken with her date, Owen Cosgrove.

Prom doubled as the couple’s one-and-a-half year anniversary, making the night even more special.

Cosgrove, meanwhile, pointed to the food as the likely highlight of the night.

The school’s all-night after-prom event was already on Katrina Pacheco’s mind, as she said she heard it was quite a fun time. Her senior year marks the end of her career in the school’s drama club, as she is prepared to head to Stonehill College in the fall to study to become a physician’s assistant.

“I’m going to miss my friends, and drama club,” Pacheco said.

“I’m looking forward to one last night with my friends before school ends,” added Amanda Vasconcelos as she posed for prom photos outside the school.
