A Royal Evening at Barbara Jordan

Barbara Jordan Elementary celebrates their young ladies and the special men in their lives with an annual ball.

Most every little girl dreams of being a Princess. TheBarbara C. Jordan P.T.O. makes that dream a reality. On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Barbara C. Jordan gymnasium was transformed into a venue fit for royalty to welcome attendees to the Princess and King Ball.

The beautiful princesses arrived at the ball wearing their best party attire and their escorts were equally as handsome. Guests enjoyed food and refreshments supplied by the P.T.O. and danced to popular tunes played by a D.J.

UCHS student, Mar'Tez Reed, was the event photographer. In addition to chronicling the ball, each couple was treated to a special portrait to remember the evening.

The now annual tradition began three years ago as the Daughter Daddy Dance and was expanded, welcoming the young princesses to invite any “King” in their life. P.T.O. President, Kimberly Jones and Vice President LaTrice Johnson coordinated the event and work to raise the bar for the event each year.

Next year they plan to serve a sit-down dinner.

And before you begin to think, “What about the boys?,” the annual ball for Princes and Queens will be held in March.
