School Board to Sponsor Unified Prom

Toombs County will be united next year for the high school prom. The Toombs County Board of Education voted last night to sponsor one prom for Toombs County High School next year.

Although the school is integrated, black and white students have organized and held their own private parties in the past. As wtoc told you in a story a month ago, this year, the school attracted national attention when Hispanic students organized their own party.

Next year, students of all races will make up a committee to plan the prom.
