CHARLES CITY —A large head last seen in public during the Charles City 2016 Homecoming Pep Rally made an appearance Saturday night at the CCHS 2017 Prom Grand March.
The bigger-than-life cardboard head of Prom king candidate Alex Koehler accompanied queen candidate Kristyn Pellymonter around the “red carpet” in the competition gym attached to the new middle school addition.
Pellymonter danced and waved — as did the other court members during their promenades — as she took her place among them awaiting the crowning moment.
Koehler was only there in spirit because he is playing football in Italy at the moment, emcee Erik Hoefer told the audience that filled much of the bleachers on both sides of the gym.
No cardboard crown was needed, however, because Prom king and queen voters chose Zion Jordan and Hannah Menken.
Also in the Prom court were Dave Dejongoy, AJ Maloy, Jaden Foster, Madelyn Bilharz, Shantel Van Hauen, and Bailee Wilts.
