March 31 (UPI) -- After students organized an unofficial integrated prom last year, a Georgia high school decided to update its policy and held its first school-sanctioned integrated prom on Saturday night.

In previous years, students at Wilcox County High School could go to one of two proms -- one for black students and one for white students.

The students who organized last year’s unofficial integrated prom aren’t convinced that everyone is supportive of the school’s decision in 2014.

“I’m absolutely sure that there are teachers that are still in the system right now that are at my school and they still don’t want an integrated prom,” said student Mareshia Rucker, one of the four girls who organized the 2013 prom.

The integrated prom was held at an agriculture center.
