High School Students Choose Prom Dates at Random

Shout out to Aquin High School in Freeport, IL for a stellar tradition that leaves no one behind at prom. And an even bigger shout out to the students for having such great attitudes about it! Ridder, Scott and Shannen found out that the tradition dates back to when the school had a somewhat large population for orphans, and the thought that "no one gets left out." 

The students at Aquin don't ask their dates to prom. In fact, they might not even know their dates! The boys draw names of girls at random. Whoever they choose is their prom date. The fun part is, the boys make a skit to reveal which girl they're going to prom with. Take a look at some of past year's below.

They've kept this tradition running since 1926!
