The Long County High School junior and senior classes hosted their 2007 prom Saturday at the Celebration Castle on Elim Church Road.
The event began at 8 and continued until nearly midnight.
“It’s been a lot of fun, sweating and dancing. But I guess that’s what a prom is suppose to be about,” senior Greg Holmes said.
Juniors showed up early to decorate the castle with lights, flowers and even an Eiffel Tower model that nearly touched the ceiling and provided the feel of Paris, France.
Principal Dr. Deloris Mallard and the Assistant Principal David Edwards, along with several teachers and staff members, attended the celebration.
Josh Cason, who is graduating this year and planning on enlisting in the Coast Guard, said his favorite part was the music videos that played throughout the night.
The highlights of the evening were the senior march and the crowning of the prom king, queen, prince and princess.
Tears flowed as parents of seniors escorted their sons and daughters during the senior march, each knowing their child would soon be going out into the world on their own.
Jim Shurling, who never attended a prom when he was in school, escorted his daughter, Jessica, and her friend, Erin McGinn, during the march.
“These are some good kids,” the proud dad said. “There have been no problems tonight, and they are having one heck of a time.”
Math teacher Christie Nevil had the honor of introducing the prom royalty for the night.
The court included Brandon Knight, king; Randi Harrison, queen; Prince Moody, prince; and Danielle Bailey, princess.
