EDMOND—About 100 Herbert W. Armstrong College students and faculty members gathered in the John Amos Field House gymnasium to celebrate the college’s 18th annual Thanksgiving Ball. On offer in the rustically decorated space was a traditional Thanksgiving meal with smoked turkey and, instead of the usual dance floor, activities including a pumpkin-themed tic-tac-toe and a place to write blessings guests were thankful for.
Registar Jason Hensley, who was attending his 17th Thanksgiving Ball along with his wife, Jessica, said, “This year’s layout made the evening feel very elegant and royal. What made this year’s Thanksgiving Ball unique was swapping the traditional socialization through dancing with the socialization through corn hole and pin the tail on the turkey.”
Student Joella Tolis, who helped organize the event, said, “Everyone really came together to put on a fantastic event and it couldn’t be done without the full involvement of each class. The credit really goes to everyone for going above and beyond, making it a special night.”
