KOSCIUSKO, Miss. (WLBT) - Kosciusko seniors danced the night away at their first-ever “senior” prom at Atwood Personal Care Home.

The party comes not long after the facility had to shut down due to a rise in COVID-19 cases.

Dozens of residents and even their nurses and personal caregivers took to the dance floor with all their grooves and funk.

The community pitched in to make sure the young at heart residents had special decorations, music, catering, and a hair and make-up stylist.

The seniors also named a prom king, queen, prince and princess.
