Don’t Stop Believin’! - LBJ LASA Virtual Prom
Meghan  Buchanan and Laurie Beaman talk to LBJ Early College HS and LASA HS  students and staff about their Virtual Prom Event which took place on  Saturday May 2nd via Zoom and Instagram live. This prom was important in  so many ways, not for prom king and queen or who “wore it best” but  because a community was able to come together with the music they love,  the people they miss, and a celebration they won’t soon forget. You can read more about this event in our blog post.
