Prom Dress Up

TCHS Prom Committee Preps the Stage at the Park

In celebration of Earth Day 2021 and in preparation for a first-ever Silver Knights riverboat prom event, the junior class of Tyler Consolidated High School and the Prom Club are teaming up to clean-up, spruce up, & dress up the park. A student team will be working Monday 4/26 & Wednesday 4/28 to help get the park ready for a great summer season beginning with Prom 2021.

This year Tyler Consolidated’s junior class is hosting prom on a riverboat cruise – with a walk-in and crowning launch event at the Sistersville Park stage and transit boat dock. The community is invited to bring lawn chairs and enjoy the festivities, taste the concessions, and celebrate the school’s efforts to get back to a sense of normalcy with the first student dance in over a year.

The Silver Knights are proud to be a part of supportive communities and are excited for the opportunity to get out and give back. This year has been a trying time for so many and like everyone else the Knights are ready to get outside and back to fun!

Seth Patterson, TCHS teacher and prom advisor, encourages the area communities to come to the park and join the festivities on Saturday, May 1st for ‘A Golden Gala.’ “The concession stand opens at 5pm, walk-in announcements begin at 5:30pm with queen crowning at 7pm. The community will also be able to see the boat off as it departs at 8pm for a two-hour river cruise,” informed Mr. Patterson.

Members of the junior class from Tyler Consolidated High School and staff would like to thank all of those involved in making this grand event happen. We are especially grateful to Mayor Bill Rice for his assistance.

The Sistersville Park and Pool Board express their sincere thanks to the members of the junior class and their advisors for generously donating time and talent to the city park. Last summer during the restrictions of the pandemic, the park was closed on and off throughout the season, and the pool did not open.

Pool board president Connie Boyd explained, “We are very grateful to the students of TCHS and their advisors. The park is in need of some sprucing up after a long winter and being closed on and off last season. We look forward to supporting and celebrating the kids of our communities, and hope we have a great turnout to cheer them on!”
