Mariner Life Skills students dance the night away
Students in the Life Skills program at Mariner had a great time dancing and celebrating their first-ever high school prom a week ago last Friday.
The event featured all the trappings of the standard prom, with the added luster of a television camera and news reporter, who were there to tell the story for KING-TV viewers later that evening.
