Approximately 240+ guests were in attendance including 150 of our classmates. We were honored to have Principal Warren Featherston, Coach Roy Walton, Coach Phil Greer, & many classmates from other years in attendance! Our own Thomas Mason came from Florida to provide the live entertainment for the evening. An array of music from all eras was performed by Mason while classmates hit the dance floor!
Poster size pages of our senior class pictures adorned the walls of the reception area. Upon registration, senior picture nametags were given to be worn by all who had preregistered.
