Prom season might be coming to an end, but it lives on in photographs for President Barack Obama.

 TIME has unearthed snapshots from the President’s 1979 prom in Hawaii. 
The previously unpublished photos of a 17-year-old Obama on the
night of his senior prom came from Obama’s classmate, Kelli Allman (née
McCormack), who is pictured second from left. 
As a student at
Punahou School, Obama spent his days studying, playing basketball (as a
player on the varsity team) and hanging out with his friends, she says.Allman shares, “It was a really fun, happy time. We were all
cracking up, and everyone was smiling. It was pretty typical from there
out as far as what happens at prom: the dinner and the dancing and the
photos.”
