South Garland High School is just outside Dallas, and they were supposed to have their prom at a nearby event center this year. However, at the last minute, the place went out of business.
So the principal started scrambling to find a new venue. After weeks of search, she held an assembly to announce that she finally has found a new one!
It turns out several different venues offered to step in and help, leaving her with the option to choose the best one. And that ended up being the stadium where the DALLAS COWBOYS play!
Over the past few years, the student body managed to raise about $15,000 in prom funds. Now typically renting out the whole stadium costs quite a bit MORE than that, but the Cowboys have offered to cover the rest of it.
The school's principal made the announcement at an assembly on Wednesday by flashing a photo of the stadium on a big screen. As you'd imagine, the students went NUTS.
