Prom migrates over to the Colony Club

This year’s prom has been moved over to the Colony Club in Detroit, a historic building good for many events will now be filled with hundreds of students this upcoming May. Venturing away from the average Rooster Tail prom, the class of 2024 tries something different this year.

Shannon Sugamele, the class of 2024 advisor, has worked hard with the class this year, narrowing it down to their final choice. The Colony Club stood out to them as a building with more historical features to it. The students put in the work, taking tours, making lists and ultimately discovered The Colony Club as their number one option.

“The class council put together a list of potential venues. They ended up loving the Colony Club because they thought it was just gorgeous,” Sugamele said. “I think that it’s really exciting that we are mixing it up, I think that the students in general wanted to do something different than previous classes have done.”

The student council has been preparing for this long awaited moment putting in loads and loads of work to make it the perfect night. Student class council Secretary, Christina Fett ’24, is excited for the hard work that they have put into this for the past four years, hoping to make the class of 2024 proud with this venue.

“When we were searching for venues our number one concern was staying in our budget while picking a venue that would excite the rest of the seniors,” Fett said. “The Colony Club appealed to us because the main ballroom had a classy vibe and they could adjust it to all our needs.”

Many seniors are excited about this new and upcoming change of tradition. Seeing many former North students enjoying themselves there in recent years is making Lucy Fry ’24 ecstatic for this night to come.

“I’m excited to go here [The Colony Club] because I’ve heard really good things about it,” Fry said. “I think it’s gonna be super fun and it feels like you’re in a ball room.”

The class council hopes that this prom will be a night full of fun and memories for all, those who went last year will also see a change of venue so it can be a new place to all. Hopefully for more years to come it’ll be a new exciting tradition for underclassmen.

“I definitely think prom will be a lot of fun this year. For seniors who attended prom last year as a junior,” Fett said. “I think they will appreciate the change in the venue. I’m really looking forward to prom and the rest of the class should be too.”

The idea of working with friends is what attracted him to jobs at Cloverleaf and at Pier Park, but also drew him to The Tower.“It's not like other classes where you are doing individual work, you’re part of a team,” Doyle said. As a first year staffer, Doyle said he is eager to see what the Tower brings.“I think it is a fun idea to work for the newspaper,” Doyle said.
