CANTON, GA (March 19, 2024) – Local seniors celebrated this past weekend during the second annual Senior Prom event hosted in partnership with Cherokee County Senior Services and the Cherokee and Sequoyah High School Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Clubs.

This free event was held in the gymnasium of Cherokee High School on Saturday afternoon. The festivities drew a crowd of roughly 40 seniors and numerous volunteers.

The affair kicked off with music being played by the Cherokee High School jazz band as seniors arrived at the venue. Attendees enjoyed an afternoon filled with lunch provided by Jersey Mike’s, trivia, dancing, and raffle prizes generously donated by local businesses.

“It was heartwarming to witness the genuine joy and camaraderie among the seniors and students alike,” said Cherokee Senior Services Activities Coordinator Sydney Caughman. “Our dedicated HOSA club members went above and beyond to ensure our seniors felt truly cherished and celebrated.”

In a highlight of the event, a king and queen were crowned to reign over the festivities. Lonnie Kerchief and Bobbi Paulger, chosen at random from names submitted by attendees, were named the Senior Prom king and queen.

The collaborative effort of over 60 HOSA club members encompassed the planning, set-up, assistance to the seniors throughout the event, and clean-up once the prom concluded.
