One of the best traditions at Weatherford High School is hosting the senior prom in the high school gym. It takes a lot of work to host this event at the campus and to transform the gym into a magical setting, but it makes the event unique.
Fortunately, each class has a sponsor and this year’s sponsor was Christine Goss. During this school year, when she wasn’t teaching English/Language Arts, Goss fufilled her role as the Senior Sponsor for the Class of 2011 which meant that she had done a lot of fundraising.
