HONOLULU, May 23 (UPI) -- A high school friend of U.S. President Barack Obama has released pictures of the head of state as a 17-year-old on his way to prom in Hawaii.
Kelli Allman, who went to prom with Obama's friend Greg Orme, released pictures of Obama and his date, Megan Hughes, posing with Allman and Orme before going to the Punahou School's prom, Time magazine reported Thursday.
Allman said the pictures were taken at her home, where the couples sipped champagne before going to the dance.
"It was a really fun, happy time. We were all cracking up, and everyone was smiling," Allman said. "It was pretty typical from there out as far as what happens at prom: the dinner and the dancing and the photos."
