Critics question prom mementoes at Utah school

WEST JORDAN -- Some parents and students are calling beer and wine glass souvenirs at a Utah high school prom inappropriate just weeks after the alcohol-related death of a student.

Copper Hills High School parent Cary Oliver Crowe tells the Deseret News of Salt Lake City that the gifts commemorating the dance this Saturday night are shocking.

School sophomore Tanner Staveley says it seems like students are being told it would be OK to drink and drive on prom night.

Copper Hills principal Todd Quarnberg says he hasn't gotten any complaints. He says many students are still struggling with the February death of 16-year-old junior Braxton Anderson.

Police say Anderson was found dead Feb. 4 in a snow-covered field where he and three other 16-year-old boys had been drinking the night before.
