Prom is a special time for high school girls, but this teenage girl will likely miss out on that experience as she won’t be allowed to attend solo.
Amanda Dougherty, 17, told CBS Philadelphia that she was shocked when officials at Archbishop John Carroll High School told her she was not allowed to go without a date because of a rule by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
“For them to say we’re not good enough to go without a guy next to us, that’s kind of sickening,” she told the TV station. Amanda has already shelled out nearly $1,000 on her prom attire and tickets, and had been comparing dresses with her friends on a Facebook page that was “blocked so the guys couldn’t see it,” she said.
