One of the best traditions at Weatherford High School is hosting the senior prom in the high school gym. It takes a lot of work to host this event at the campus and to transform the gym into a magical setting, but it makes the event unique.

Fortunately, each class has a sponsor and this year’s sponsor was Christine Goss. During this school year, when she wasn’t teaching English/Language Arts, Goss fufilled her role as the Senior Sponsor for the Class of 2011 which meant that she had done a lot of fundraising.

This year the senior class had to raise $30,000 -- a goal that could not have been accomplished without the leadership provided of Goss. This is the short list of fundraising activities:

- Spring 2010 Talent Show and Powder Puff Football game

- Prom Sponsorship Program

- WHS Outback Outing Golf Tournament

- WHS Craft Sale and we received 20% from any of the prom dresses sold from

- Veronica's Closet.

- Hulen Mall - My School is Cool Competition

- Drawing for a spa day at Jennz Day Spa

- Sold buttons and noise makers and did face painting at home football games

- Sold senior class t-shirts

- Feast Week

- Hat Day at WHS

- Prom Fashion Show

- Senior Class Garage Sale

- On The Border Night - first Tuesday of the month

- Pie in a teacher's face
