Some students arrived at school in party buses and others in antique cars with young ladies sporting fancy dresses and the gentlemen decked out in tuxedos on the evening of Saturday, April 30. The calling was Ripley-Union-Lewis-Huntington High School’s 2016 Prom, and this year’s theme for the big night was The Great Gatsby, taken from the 1925 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.
Crowned this year’s King was senior J.T. Holmes, while receiving the nod for this year’s RULH Prom Queen was Kilee Brookbank. Other female members of the Prom Court were Courtney Germann, Cara Payne, Kristen Abbott, Sky Denny, and Junior Prom Princess Bailey Adams.
Other male members of this year’s Prom Court were Charles Love, Chandler Slowey, Zach Adams, Jacob Miller, and Junior Prom Prince Jordan Griffith.
