MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Good idea or not so much?
A Newport Beach high school principal is addressing rumors that a group of boys on campus are treating the spring prom as an NFL-style draft — ranking female students and sometimes paying top dollar for first-round picks!
The alleged “prom draft” was the subject of a letter sent home on Friday, May 2nd to parents of students at Corona del Mar High School — according to FOX6’s sister station, KTLA.
According to KTLA, the alleged prom draft was first reported Monday, May 5th by the Orange County Register, which noted that a tweet posted by the senior class Twitter account last week stated “Many drafters on the prowl tomorrow for #freeagents so dress nice ladies.”
KTLA reports to participate, male juniors and seniors draw random numbers — but can purchase more desirable draft picks.
One student says the girls respect the draft — but the high school’s principal isn’t happy to learn this is happening.
