W_-_Prom2Santa Fe High School student T.J. Knight takes a moment to pose with Prom Princess Jolene Henry.

GAINESVILLE – On Friday, April 13, the Best Western Gateway Grand Ballroom was transformed into a magical setting for the Santa Fe High School Prom.

This year’s theme, "masquerade," was accomplished in dramatic fashion with vivid masks, showy peacock feathers and twinkling fairy lights.

Led by Santa Fe High School teacher Risa Wray, she coordinated the event, including student participation, and garnered support by a number of parents who helped with the decorations and food.  Floral arrangements, which were provided by Lady Bug Florist, captivated prom guests.

Among adults in attendance were Santa Fe Athletic Director Michelle Faulk and “Voice of the Raiders” Ben Boukari, Jr.

No prom would be complete without a king and queen. Voted by their peers, seniors Brandon Faulk and Jenna Gainey reigned as "Prom King and Queen." Juniors Lake Hart and Jolene “Joie” Henry were crowned "Prom Prince and Princess."

About the prom, seventeen-year-old Henry said, "I always wanted to be a Disney princess; perhaps I can include this in my Disney resume.”  Henry served on the prom committee, Student Government, Interact Club, Year book, FCA, Varsity Volleyball ,Honor Roll and maintains a 4.0 grade average.
