Most people look forward to getting dressed up and dancing the night away at prom, but a few are anxious and excited to receive a new title given to them by their class, Prom King and Queen.

Taylor-Athena Chybinski, Archbishop Ryan varsity soccer and lacrosse captain, had been dreaming of running for prom queen since gradeschool.

“It was always something I wanted to accomplish. To have that title and that privilege, even if it was just for the night, would be such an honor that would make me the happiest girl ever!” said Chybinski.

As soon as Ryan announced that sign-ups for king and queen were available, Chybinski was one of the first names on the list. Soon after sign-ups, a poll made by principal Mr. McFadden was sent in an email to the whole senior class for their vote.

The morning of prom McFadden stated, “Around 200 kids from the senior class voted for prom king and queen, it will be a very close call.”

Archbishop Ryan held its senior prom at the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, N.J., on May 5. Once the time came to announce prom king and queen at the event, Chybinski was right in front, hoping to hear her name be called.

“My heart was beating so fast and I was so excited,” Chybinski said. “All of my friends were around me and at that point even if I would win or lose, I would have been so happy.”

Prom king was announced first. Nick DiBello, senior volleyball player, was crowned king by the senior class.

Then it was time to announce the queen. After a few moments of silence, Chybinski  heard her name called! The whole dance floor roared in excitement as Chybinski got her tiara and her sash.

“It was the best moment of my four years of high school. My classmates were so supportive and everyone was so happy to see me win. I still can’t believe I’m prom queen!”
