The Zachary High School Special Education Department held its 5th annual Special Needs Prom on Friday, March 4. Ms. Byrd and Ms. Gaines’ students put on their formal wear and were treated to music from “DJ Coach Q,” beautiful decorations, and refreshments. A group of their friends (cheerleaders, agriculture science students, football players, and many others) were waiting to dance with them.
The 2022 Prom Court was then given sashes, crowns, and tiaras. Their names were announced, and each court member was escorted through the crowd. The students then grabbed parasols and circled the dance floor for a “Second Line.” The room was full of big smiles and tons of energy.
