CRESTVIEW — Richbourg Exceptional Student Education School presented its prom on Friday, with guys in ties, girls in gowns, pumping dance music and lots of food.

"That was a good dance, huh?" Richbourg student Jacob Luttrell said as the lights went up. The kids had moved their hips, raised their hands or spun their wheels to the last song, Miley Cyrus' "Party in the U.S.A."

Jacob had been anticipating the prom all week, teacher's aide Heather Carmical said.

"Dancing with friends and girls is great!" Jacob said.

Earlier, Brooke Johnson spun around in her wheelchair and Crestview High School senior Alex Andrews guided her in a line dance snaking through a classroom.

Brooke's grandparents, Mark and Barbara Worthen, visiting from Illinois, beamed as their granddaughter had fun on the dance floor.

"She enjoys this every year," Barbara Worthen said. "She looks forward to it."
