Girl Attends Prom With Five Escorts

May 30, 1988

FLINT, Mich. (AP) _ Jennifer Dresser attended her high school’s final proms with five dates.

Southwestern High School is one of eight Flint schools that will close this summer because of declining enrollment and revenue.

″It’s our last Southwestern senior prom,″ said Matt Taylor, one of Dresser’s escorts. ″It has to be special.″

Dresser, 17, and her classmates had planned to go without dates to Saturday night’s event, said escort Tom Witucki. After reflecting on the prom theme, ″Ever Changing Times,″ they decided to go as a group.

″She’s just a good friend ... we all get along,″ said Randy Hudson, who also joined Dresser’s entourage along with Witucki, Taylor, Doug Wilson and Hannu Puhakka, an exchange student from Finland.

Dresser’s only complaint was a sore finger repeatedly pricked while attaching five boutonnieres to as many lapels.
