Highlights: Class of 2014 Grand March

Hopkinton High held its Junior Prom on the 17th. And before heading out for the evening, the High School hosted its annual Grand March ceremony which gives students the opportunity to show off to parents, teachers, and other students their dates as well as formal attire.

After the Juniors and their dates made their grand entrance into the athletic center, it was time to announce the prom court winners, which was done through a random drawing. The winners were Shannon McAree, Mason Miller, and Andrew Rogers. Andre LeBlanc and Erica McBride were honored with prom king and queen titles respectively.

HCAM was broadcasting live from the event. If you missed the broadcast or want to re-live the moment, it will replay on HCAM-TV, HCAM-ED, as well as online. Check the HCAM program schedule for specific air dates and times. DVDs of Grand March can be purchased on the HCAM website as well.
