CHERRY HILL -

The principal of Cherry Hill High School East is apologizing to students after there were some complaints over senior prom tickets.

The venue is at Philadelphia's National Constitution Center, and the ticket said students should "party like it's 1776."

Principal Dennis Perry says it was insensitive since not all communities could have celebrated back then.
