What others are saying...
“The Waxahachie Civic Center was a beautiful venue that was large enough for 600 people, but still personal. The set up was such that all hallways could be monitored during the prom with a minimum of people. The location of the Civic Center to our high school was wonderful which allowed students to stay until the prom was over. Staff members were incredibly helpful, and we really appreciated all of their efforts on our behalf.”
-Vickie Ratliff, Sophomore Academic Advisor, Red Oak ISD
