On Friday evening, April 16, 2010, guests prepared for the annual Junior/Senior Banquet and
Prom.  Junior and Senior class members gathered in front of the cafeteria, anxiously awaiting the
Grand March.  Proud parents snapped photos and gave hugs.  The march began and guests
were seated.  Mr. Rorex, high school principal, announced each student as they entered the
banquet area.  After all were seated, a welcome was given by Junior class president, Katie
Ponder, and a response was made by Senior class president, Hannah Rowsey.  A prayer was
offered by Junior class member Stetson Wells and dinner was served.  Sophomore servers
included Shilah Boudin, Kristin Bratcher, Zach Brown, Sara Childress, Sam Clem, and Emily
Ogden.  A delicious meal of chicken strips, baked potato, green beans, hot rolls and cheesecake
with chocolate covered strawberries was enjoyed by all.  After the meal, a slide show highlighting
Junior and Senior class members was played.  The banquet concluded and guests prepared for
the dance.  Music for the dance was supplied by Sound Xtreme.  A large crowd attended and
enjoyed their time at the dance.  A prom King and Queen, Aaron Higginbotham and Kara Morris,
and Prince and Princess, Chase DeJournet and Maegan Austin, were crowned.  The crowd
anxiously awaited the announcement of the dance contest and five courageous couples hit the
floor:  Kayla Brown and Chase DeJournett; Sara Childress and Zack Ogden; Amanda Holland
and Aaron Higginbotham; Kara Morris and Micky Jones; and Michala Stacy and Matthew
Baldridge.  After what seemed an eternity of dancing, the winners were announced:  Kayla
Brown and Chase DeJournett.  Each received a gift card to Subway.  As the evening ended,
all were in agreement; it was “A Night to Remember”.
