Guests were treated to hair and makeup touch-up and shoeshines, KWTX reported. Designated dance partners were chosen for each person, and a professional photographer captured the action throughout the night.

Limo service was provided for a spin around the block, and a marching band played current hits.

The highlight of the night came when the prom-goers watched a special video message from Tebow, who announced that every person was elected as a prom king or queen, KWTX reported.

“I'm so happy, I could cry,” guest Deborah Adams said.

Each was crowned by volunteers that included local and statewide pageant queens, KWTX reported.
