Sir west, along with many of the school dances. is put together by the Pueblo West student council.
In order to narrow down the plenty of themes, the members of student council pick a few ideas and ‘play with them’. “The process starts before winter break and we start picking spirit days and making-or buying props”, explained student class president, Evan Ward.
Every year the deca DJ program is used, however this will be the first year that PWHS will hire a professional DJ. His Name is Armando Chavez. He’s in his mid thirties and he works for IHeart Radio company. He came and met with the student council and they took a liking to him.
