It was the first time the organizations held a prom.
The prom was held at the lower level of Life Center Church of God in Christ. The colors were navy and white along with a candy table and plenty of cupcakes.
There was an elected prom king and queen, the voting was based on recommendations from the student’s social workers. There were even performances throughout the night starring the students.
Additional local and national organizations provided the men with tuxedos and the women with complimentary professional hair and make up sessions.
