CLARK, NJ:  On Thursday, March 5, the junior class of  Arthur L. Johnson High School held its annual prom fashion show. The event has become an annual tradition, with juniors and seniors decked out in the year's most sought after styles. 

Mia DeSantis and Matthew Snedeker provided the commentary for the evening wear parade. Music, provided by DJ Leo DeSantis, filled the entire room while the models walked the runway, strutting dresses provided by Lord and Taylor and tuxedos from Sarno/Dante Tuxedos in Linden.   

The girls had the opportunity to get their hair and makeup done by either Locks and Lashes or Boutique on Broadway. The girls all agreed that the salons did a fabulous job in making sure they looked stunning for the night they had ahead of them.

Tuxedos by Sarno (AKA Dante Tuxedos) in Linden, was generous enough to provide tuxedos to all the boys to ensure that they would look stylish on this special occasion. Optional spray tans were also generously provided to the participants by Forever Tan. 

The most unexpected moment in the fashion show came when Jilian Pencinger used her moment in the spotlight to ask Craig Manning to the prom. Many of the participants and guests teared up when Pencinger revealed her "promposal." 

During intermission, guests had the opportunity to win several door prizes including a gift basket from Forever Tan that was filled with a gift card and other goodies, as well as a free prom bid. 

At the end of the night, all guests had an opportunity to visit the variety of limousines provided by Action Limousine in Garwood, which would be available to rent during prom season. “It was great to be able to continue this long-standing school tradition,” said class advisor Mary Davey, “It’s always nice to see the students all dressed up.”
