HENDERSON — Students from Granville County Early College danced the night away at the Vance Granville Civic Center on April 6. The early college was the first school in the county to hold its annual prom.

The much-anticipated night began for some with photos at the gazebo on campus while others found the bed of roses to take their prom photos.

Limos, vans, trucks and cars pulled up to the door as excited promgoers waited their turn to exit their chariot and enter into a magical night.

The “Beauty and the Beast”-themed event was decorated with roses, mirrors and sparkling lights.

The senior walk highlighted the night with 21 of the 29 seniors taking their final stroll down the walkway at the prom as they received their senior gift from Granville County Early College Principal Jackie Harris.
