As the school year nears a close, graduating seniors face two very daunting questions: “What college will I attend?” and “What will I wear to prom?”

In 2011, instead of hitting the mall, Allie Rogers and David Bayless used duct tape to construct their ensembles. Here’s a quote that appeared in our original blog post, from Alecia Jenkins, Cambridge’s director of development:

“As if studying for five AP exams and writing her speech as Valedictorian of her senior class weren’t enough to keep her busy, Allie Rogers made her own prom dress. And she made it out of duct tape. Mary Rogers, Allie’s mother, says that Allie wanted to do something creative for her last formal dance at The Cambridge School of Dallas. Once she decided to be unconventional in her attire, she knew she’d need the right date. Allie asked classmate David Bayless who is known for his willingness to have fun, and he agreed to the plan.”
