ABBEVILLE, Georgia (WMGT) -- Every spring students dress up and head off to separate proms, one for the white students and the other for black students.

But this year, that could all change for a school in Georgia.

When Wilcox County schools integrated 30 years ago, the annual school sponsored prom ended.

Parents began to raise money to host separate proms and it's a tradition that continues to this day.

Several high school students are working to break the racial boundaries and are raising money for the school's first integrated prom.
