The Junior Class and their sponsors would like to extend a HUGE “Thank You” to the following who helped make our evening special: Sarah Culver of Culver Creations for her assistance with decorations and her help in decorating the gym, Julie Strickland of Strickland Photography for taking prom photos, DJ Bill Whitt of Tunz 4 U, the FMTC for use of their speaker system, Mickey Anderson for emceeing the drive-down, Justin Miller and the Viking Center for allowing us to change walk-in plans and use the Viking Center facility and Rick Boyer for providing the invocation at the prom meal and helping decorate. The students and guests enjoyed a delicious meal with help from Joanie Sink who coordinated the meal, Rocky Rocha who prepared the meat, potatoes, gravy, and cheesecake, the junior class parents who provided items for the meal, and Sara Kammerer, Shelley Anderson, Christi Elwood, Clarisa Johnson, Dana Gibbs, Alix Kammerer, Gen Houston, Sara Culver, Marla and Mickey Anderson, Scott and Robin Culbertson, Shawna Olson, Teresa and John Wenstrand, Michelle Sandin who helped in the kitchen, along with the 8 sophomore and freshmen servers who did a wonderful job assisting at the meal.

The Villisca Lions Club has donated a tree again this year to be planted in Stanton.

Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate so we will plant the tree at Old Main in the near future.
