Enrichment Center Director Debbie Druzbick is retiring and the Senior prom was a wonderful sendoff. After a photo op, a new Prom King and Queen were chosen at random.

The incoming director Dell O. Barnes, Sr. impressed the gathering with his skills on the saxophone. There was dancing and camaraderie.
