To the Editor,

Endurance Church of West Plains recently hosted Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine prom for individuals with special needs. We were honored to have 101 guests with special needs along with their families in attendance. We would like to thank the following businesses for partnering with us to bring many smiles to the faces of these wonderful individuals:

Landmark Bank of West Plains; BNSF Railway; Ozark Independent Living; Vintage Floral of Willow Springs for providing all the corsages and boutonnieres; Michael Libby of Blackjack Sound and Lighting; Bootleggers BBQ for feeding nearly 300 people; Ashley Rhoads hair stylist and A Valeria Boss Salon Stylists Valeria Boss, Karissa Houts, and Jordan Laney for providing the ladies with beautiful hair styles for their special evening; photographers from Brittany Sipler Photography, Gray Photography and Nikkilaine Photography provided each guest with access to beautiful memories;

Kelly Gotta Getta Limo based in Springfield and Howell County Sheriff’s Department  offered the guests rides in their vehicles; James Holloway of South Central Golf and Angelia Totty of Missouri State University West Plains provided golf cart transportation throughout the parking lot; and Missouri State University Grizzlies Cheer Team joined the dance floor, performing several routines for the guests.
