I don't know how it is elsewhere, but around here we have a "Mormon Prom" that's either the week before or after the high school prom. Usually they try to ensure that everyone has a date, the go all out on decorations, and the whole environment is one of fun while still abiding by Church standards.
Having been a chaperone at both high school and church dances, I can tell you there's a HUGE difference in the atmosphere. And no one, to my knowledge, has been suspended for misbehaving at the Mormon Prom.
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the New Era and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
