Prom marks the end of the year for high schoolers, and prom season is in full swing. A new survey found on average students plan to spend more than $900 on the big day. That’s actually down a bit from last year, but the survey also found the average cost of just asking a date to prom — often called a “promposal” — is $324.
Ally Rogers says she got serious about golf at the age of 10, but it took a while to catch on. “When I was younger I just remember complaining a lot on the course with my dad. Just that it was too cold. And that I would always be hungry or something,” Rogers said. That actually wasn’t all that long ago. Ally is a 15-year-old freshman at Spring Lake Park.
