Middle College at Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – The Middle College at Austin Peay State University took a different approach to prom this year, choosing to hold their festivities at downtown Clarksville’s iconic Roxy Regional Theatre.

In charge of this year’s prom, was school newcomer Jodi Carrier.

Middle College held its 2018 Prom at Roxy Regional Theatre.

“I am the Social Studies Department Lead, and I had the honor of being this year’s Prom Coordinator,” Carrier said. “This is my first year teaching at Middle College, so we organized a Prom Committee, and the students and I worked together to come up with ideas for this year’s theme and decorations. It was fun, and they definitely did most of the work.”

Students were lined up outside the the Roxy waiting for the doors to open. At 6:00pm the doors were opened and a red carpet was literally rolled out to greet the excited prom-goers. As the students entered, they were checked in at the ticket window, then greeted by a photographer, ready to capture the memories of the evening.

“It’s called Night of the Stars”, Carrier said. “The party has kind of an old Hollywood theme with a 1920’s feel, so the Roxy was a perfect fit for us.”

The event included dancing on the Roxy stage, the red carpet led the students past the food and refreshments, all the way to the stage. There they were greeted by an interestingly lit backdrop and a DJ spinning the latest dance music.

Middle College at APSU is steadily growing, the school now boasts about 150 students, 75 juniors and 75 seniors. The program is part of CMCSS, but Middle College classes are held on campus at APSU.

“We actually have our own building on campus,” Carrier said. “Students usually apply when they are in the 10th or 11th grade, and there are minimum requirements that they have to meet. Once they are accepted to our school, they essentially become college students. With that comes a lot of responsibility.”

Carrier describes the current program as a ‘transitional pathway’. Students continue with required core classes, but also take one college-level course in the fall, and then two in the spring of their first year. In their senior year, students take three college-level courses in the fall, and then four in the spring.
