This is the 9th year since Ron and LeAnn Darby’s son, Cole, graduated from Joplin High. He was a part of the Special Education Dept back then. Cole had informed them he’d be driving the families classic pickup to prom. But he had no drivers license.

That is how it began.

It’s grown to include Joplin Police escort across town for the string of classic rides. A dinner beforehand at Central Christian Church. And lots of photos.

Watch for our live video this year, 2022. Prom is being held on East 20th at the I DO event center.
