Mosquero high school students take prom dates to town’s first restaurant

MOSQUERO, N.M. (KRQE) – Most schools have already had their proms, and for one New Mexico high school, prom was extra special this year.

Students at Mosquero High School in Harding County used to have to drive more than an hour for a prom date because there were no restaurants in the town of just 120 people.

But this year, for the first time, a new restaurant called “Headquarters” opened, so the kids got to have dinner right in town.

About 30 people turned out for dinner.

Mosquero has 21 students in grades 7 through 12. They are graduating a class of seven seniors this year.
