Alabama Industries for the Blind Executive Director Wins Dancing With the ‘Dega Stars!
The judges this year gave top honors to Alabama Industries for the Blind Executive Director, Kyle Gregg and Mylie Johnson, a middle school teacher at Saks Middle School with a lifelong passion for dance. The couple danced to “Ease On Down The Road,” a song immortalized in “The Whiz” by Michael Jackson and Diana Ross. The couple wowed the judges with elaborate costumes and a set as well with their dance moves.
Alabama School for the Blind’s DannyRay Finley, Director of Student Life, and his dance partner, Randi Jo Owens also took home top honors in two categories: Audience Favorite with their rhumba to Santana’s “Maria Maria” and Fundraising after raising $5,300.
