Students attending from Bethel Park included: Jessica Davis, Jessica Greene, Lauren Wycinsky, Hannah Conroy, Melizza Szabo, Ellie McGregor, Thomas Zoldos, Andrew Dixon, and Nolan Rosemeir.

Staff members also attended, including: Julie Hernandez, Amber Haefner, Deb Ruffing and Sharon Smith.

BPHS students attending seemed extremely excited as they waited to board the bus early that morning. They even wished to give a special thanks to Mrs. Ruffing’s daughters who allowed them to borrow her old dresses.

Deb Ruffing, one of the staff members attending, even mentioned all the accommodations and daily agenda for the afternoon.

“They have music, dancing, characters, food, a prom queen and king, maybe even a photo booth and magician.”
