The history of After Prom:
As we look forward to After Prom, it is important to look back and remember the reason why After Prom Parties started in the first place. Beth Ann Brooks and Brian Jay McEwen went to a Millard School Prom in 1984 and never returned home. There were NO planned activities after Prom that night.
After a three-week search covering 50 states and either some foreign countries, the Jeep Wagoneer that Junior Beth Brooks and Alumnus Brian McEwen were driving to Prom on May 11 was pulled from a muddy creek not five miles from their homes. The two died on May 12 when the vehicle they were in plunged off a country road where a bridge had been removed to make way for future Dam Site 20. The Jeep dove 15 feet and settled on its top below another 15 feet of water. It remained undiscovered for 23 days until June 3.
A desperate search was conducted by air, land and water. More than 200,000 fliers were distributed. Many picked up the fliers from the Millard Hy-Vee where the couple worked. Button saying, “Have you seen Brian & Beth?” were worn by every Hy-Vee employees and many involved in the search. Both friends and sheriff’s detectives had even searched the creek in which they were found. Although the resolution of the tragedy was not the one prayed for, three weeks of uncertainly and fear were over.
Only loving memories now remain.
PARENTS PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PROGRAM!

We have no statistics on how many lives this event may have saved since 1985. Please do not let more accidents claim the lives of our students.
