Franklin Regional’s prom was held Friday night.
About 400 students attended the prom, more than in years past.
The school received a number of donations, including an ice-cream station from the Steelers and a photo booth.
“It is very humbling to know people in the community are caring and trying to make this a nice event for the students in the community,” said Reljac.
Plans for the prom were made months ago and didn't change much after the stabbing rampage in April.
“We really didn’t change those plans. They were set pretty well, and the only thing we have done is added a few extra security people because we expect to have a large turnout,” said Assistant Superintendent Catherine Reljac.
Friday afternoon, dozens of students, some of whom were seriously hurt in the stabbing rampage in April, walked with their dates in a promenade. Their proud family members were there to watch.
