Sunday, May 31st 2015. Chrisbert Garcia Reporting: Graduates of the Toledo Community College (TCC) held their first prom celebration in five years on Saturday night at Belcampo Lodge just outside Punta Gorda Town.
TCC, which has approximately 1000 students, pioneered the tradition in the South as a reward for students’ hard work; however, the school has been unable to hold Prom in recent years for financial reasons.
The Class of 2015 held multiple fundraisers to ensure that this year’s event did not suffer the same fate, and the attendees tell us they enjoyed this memorable night, a pleasure denied to their predecessors.
Females in sparkling dresses and males in perfectly pressed tuxedos competed for the honor of Prom King and Queen,won by James Michael Bregal and Gracielle Roches respectively.
