Quincy High School’s 2022 Prom returned to the Plumas County Courthouse last night, May 14, after a two-year hiatus. The cool spring evening was the perfect setting for the “Enchanted Forest” themed prom, and families and well-wishers crowded around the steps of the courthouse awaiting their beloved student’s arrival in classic cars and trucks.

Prom King and Queen were David Leonhardt and Brystol Beatley. Best Dressed were Paloma Garcia-Couoh and Lynell Thomas.

Enjoy some photos from the evening’s grand event.
