HENDERSON  From sparkling tiaras to rhinestone-studded shoes, the gems of Granville Central were shining brightly at the school's annual prom April 27 at the Henderson Country Club. 

Many of the promgoers took advantage of a gorgeous Saturday afternoon to take photos with family and friends at the gazebo in Butner before heading off to the prom.

Everyone walked the red carpet as they entered the "Diamonds are Forever"-themed prom. Roses and diamond dust accented the dance floor.

Promgoers danced to the "Cha-Cha Slide" and the Granville Central staff taught them how to do the "Electric Slide."

The magical night was capped by the senior walk and Tristan Boney and Ashlyn Smoot were named prom king and queen.
