Hiawatha senior Casey Martinez wipes tears from her eyes after hugging her mother Monica Martinez (left) after being crowned prom queen at the Hiawatha High School prom at Faranda's Banquet Center in DeKalb on Saturday, May 9, 2015. Martinez and her family lived in Faridale and survived the April 9 tornado. Her house was left uninhabitable and they are currently living with family in Belvidere in the final months of her senior year. Martinez's prom dress was also damaged in the tornado and the Hiawatha community was able to fix the dress, and raise money and received donations to get her hair, make-up, and nails done before prom.
