Emporia News needs your help because it is time to replace a laptop and a camera, so that I may continue to bring you a quality site. It troubles me to ask for donations, but without support, Emporia News may be forced to shut down. Thank You.

Spring Fling – A Night to Remember

On May 23, Robinson-Withers Gym at Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services was transformed into an elegant ballroom for the evening’s “Spring Fling” prom.  JFBHS would like to recognize and thank everyone who worked so hard to ensure the event would be a success.

Students in JFBHS’ art program prepared and hung decorations throughout the gym. JFBHS food service staff prepared special foods and sweets for the event.  Wooten Brothers Greenhouse loaned beautiful table decorations. Staff member and professional photographer Leon Robinson snapped photos throughout the evening while staff member and professional DJ Craig Mangrum provided the music that kept the boys and girls dancing all night.  Students at the Collegiate School in Richmond provided prom dresses, shoes, and accessories through The Fairy Godmother program.  Several Rotary clubs in the region donated blazers for the boys.  A friend of JFBHS provided hair styling and manicures.

Prom is a rite of passage for most American teenagers, and JFBHS is committed to providing this special event that residents will cherish for a lifetime.
