No Time to Show OUT; These Kids are Showing OFF!

The prom season may be over for local high schools, but not in the Riverview community. It was a fitting birthday celebration for the neighborhood's premiere youth organizer.

The 7th annual New Vision Youth Prom was held at the Civic Auditorium in Kingsport on Saturday, June 25, 2011, as New Vision director Johnnie Mae Swaggerty celebrated her birthday. The youth were treated to finger sandwiches, chips, cookies and punch, and the music kept them busy socializing and getting a good workout, too!

The young men brought their dates and everybody had a good time.

There were actually two proms, the first being for New Vision Youth ages 5 to 12, finishing up with the crowning of Prom Prince and Princess. With a judgment by applause, the winners were Ray Petty, a 5th grader at John Sevier Middle School, and crowned as Princess, his date Jaden Fullen, 5th grader at Lincoln Elementary School.

After the younger prom wrapped up, the older New Vision Youth, ages 13 to 16 took over with the same enthusiam as their younger counterparts. Again, a good time was had by all, with the prom culminating with the crowning of Prom King and Queen. By applause, the couple chosen were William Eidison, an 8th grader at Robinson Middle School, and his date crowned as Prom Queen Ayloenna Camp, an 8th grader at John Sevier Middle.
