Nevada High School Seniors and Childhood Friends go for Prom King & Prom Queen

Updated:

Prom is one of those moments for high school seniors that closes a chapter and opens a new one.
For two area seniors and lifelong friends, this prom will be even more magical.


Carolyn Quitno loves to run, and Colin Bond loves cars. Although they have special needs, in their hometown of Nevada, they are just like everyone else.

"They're just like us. We love them so much and it doesn't really surprise me I guess." says fellow Nevada High School student, Jennifer Mosbrucker.

"I've never been told once no, for any of his needs. And they've been really instrumental with integrating him into the student body." says Katie Williams, Colin Bond's mother.

Both seniors at Nevada High School, Carolyn and Colin will be heading to their prom Saturday evening as each others dates.
One thing that makes the experience more magical...Carolyn and Colin are on the ballot for prom king and prom queen.

"I've been friends with Colin when I was about three. I've been friends with Breanna since about 4." says Carolyn, with excitement.

"We're all gonna ride in a limo and come straight back here to school for prom" Colin says.
As soon as students walk through the gym doors the vote lies in their hands on who becomes the prom king & queen, but Colin and Carolyn both say they're already feeling like royalty.
"She's getting her nails done, a manicure and pedicure, after school and she's going to get her hair done and Colin and another friend are coming over for dinner." Carolyn's mother, Nora Quitno tell us.
"When the student comes in the promenade, they vote for the one they feel is the person who would represent the king or queen the best. And the students chose both Carolyn and Colin to be two of the candidates." Wes Morton, a Nevada High School choir teach and Jr. class sponsor says.

Whether they win the crown or not, both say prom is that one special moment for a senior....and one step closer to the finish line of high school.

"Students are so supportive of them and they're so happy about it. I think that it's awesome that we pick really kind, genuine people to be our prom king and queen." says Nevada High School Junior, Gabby Gire.


The Nevada High School Promenade parade begins at 5:30 Saturday evening.
Both Carolyn and Colin say they are looking forward to their limo ride, a night of dancing, and bowling at the after prom party.
