TyKara Robinson, Reporter

Due to  local school district closures and the “Stay at Home-Stay Safe” requirements in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the cancellation of the last semester of senior year has left thousands of students hopeless and devastated to be missing out on an eventful night of celebration;Prom. In response to this news, a local Houston radio station, 97.9 The Box will be hosting the very first and hopefully the last Virtual Prom. Students will have an opportunity to participate in prom and be named Prom King or Queen along with free family dinner provided by The Turkey Leg Hut. Using the #979VirtualProm, students are encouraged to show off their best dance moves with their high school in the caption.
